Meet the Women in Science-Ecology (WISE) Team. We are the equality commission of the Spanish Association of Terrestrial Ecology (AEET). This commission was born with the purpose to achieve a long-term objective: to promote diversity in the academic world.
We believe that it is necessary to protect and make visible groups historically discriminated against, such as women and LGBTIQ people, in any field of ecology, because the knowledge society requires a diverse and tolerant academic space, in accordance with social reality.
The AEET is a group of people who are especially aware of the value of diversity. We know that only by promoting diversity within our collective can we generate an environment that is enriching and inclusive enough for groundbreaking ideas and innovative projects to emerge that advance our knowledge of terrestrial ecology, and that provide answers to the current ecological crisis.
