The evolutionary sciences (e.g., evolutionary biology, anthropology, paleontology) continue to transform our understanding of the natural world and advance human health, agriculture, and conservation. Nevertheless, in many countries throughout the world, the scientific workforce engaged in the study of evolution fails to reflect the diversity of its citizens. Many historical and contemporary factors contribute to this troubling situation, and Evolution: Education and Outreach is committed to advancing understanding of and promoting solutions to this challenge.
This article collection highlights prior contributions to the topic of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the evolutionary sciences and motives further work. The journal invites submissions from scientific organizations, biologists, social scientists, and educators working to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion in the evolutionary sciences.
