Diversity & Inclusion
Supporting DEI at PRF2022
A key goal of the PRF2022 Penrose Conference is to maximize inclusion and diversity. We encourage participation from, and will provide some financial support for, a range of international, gender, BIPOC, LGBTQIA, early-career stage and other underrepresented and disadvantaged groups. If you are a member of one of these groups, you will be asked to indicate this on our Participation Form if you would like to receive financial aid to attend. We will identify - based on need - 15-20 recipients of scholarships to attend the conference.
To further foster a sense of belonging and a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, we will be implementing a mentoring scheme for any attendee desiring a mentor. An artist in residence will also attend the conference, and resultant artwork will provide a key communication tool with the public, and among the scientists.
