Diversity, equity, and inclusion

Brazilian federal universities are required by law to have 50% of incoming undergraduates from low-income families. At the Federal University of Espirito Santo, this requirement is coupled with policies to promote the enrollment of students of ethnic and racial minorities, and/or who are disabled. There are no student fees. UFES has a dedicated senior office of Student Affairs and Citizenship (please note it is in Portuguese), which governs the institutional affirmative actions and manages diversity and accessibility programs.

At the Paleontology Lab, we aim for an inclusive and safe workplace environment. We are proud to be founding members of the Brazilian Women in Paleontology network and research project.

Here are some of the talks, roundtables, and podcasts in which we participated to discuss the inequalities faced by women in Science (please note most are in Portuguese).
