Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

IAH is aiming for much wider inclusion, building a truly diverse, global organisation of groundwater professionals, while maintaining a strong focus on encouraging students to join and supporting the members’ early career and subsequent professional development.

It is clear, as noted by UNECE, that ‘There can be no sustainable future without gender equality’ and ‘Without gender equality, there can be no climate justice’, which underline the importance of equity and equality in wider society. Jane Dottridge, IAH Secretary General, emphasised IAH’s strong support for these goals in her presentation at a ‘Women in Hydrogeology conference’ organised by the UK Hydrogeological community. Positive publicity will also help to encourage women and girls into our profession.
