Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

I acknowledge that I live and work on the ancestral land and water of the Coast Salish people.
The Bundy lab acknowledges that the racial diversity of oceanography, and academia as a whole, does not reflect the demographics of the state of Washington or the U.S. As such, we must actively work to change this.
In the Bundy lab we believe that scientists should work as a team. We value individuals, no matter their race, ethnicity, gender or sexual identity, or socioeconomic background. We think science works best when we have a diversity of opinions, insights, and methods for solving a problem. We also believe that we must actively work everyday to acknowledge our own biases, to combat them, and to stand up to racial injustices when we see or hear them.
