Purpose of the Society for Equity in Astronomy

The Society for Equity in Astronomy (SEA) strives to promote equity and inclusion locally in Astronomy and related fields. We work to maintain a safe space environment, where members can feel free to talk about any problems they are having and explore the progression toward a more diverse and welcoming astronomy community.

In addition to hosting general meetings, we host chats with visiting Astronomy colloquium speakers over tea, facilitate a graduate-to-undergraduate mentoring program, hold discussions on key topics related to equity and inclusion in Astronomy, STEM, and/or academia, and have general career development events for undergraduate and graduate students.
