The Toolik Field Station management and staff stand with all those who are affected by racial and social discrimination.

We hear you. We are listening and reflecting to learn more about how we, as a community, can better support Alaska Native people, people of color, and all those who are affected by injustices. We are committed to creating a more open, inclusive, and diverse community within Toolik Field Station. We know this is just the beginning and there is much more work to be done. Moving forward we pledge:

  1. To recognize and challenge statements and constructs inside and outside of the Toolik Community that are demeaning, devaluing, or degrading.
  2. To make greater efforts to seek out and reach out to BIPOC communities to make them aware of our student internships, TUNDRA research award, and employment opportunities.
  3. To provide educational materials for Toolik staff and users to educate themselves on and challenge implicit biases that may be impacting the workplace. We want to share these resources to facilitate growth and foster a community of alliance.
