Canadian Society of Soil Science Anti-racism Statement

We acknowledge that our community is not exempt from the systemic racism, violence, and discrimination that Black, Indigenous, and people of colour (BIPOC) face. In particular, we must continue to call attention to the institutionalized racism in academia and the Canadian research community and how these biases affect the Canadian Society of Soil Science (CSSS) and its members. As a national science organization, our responsibility includes advocating for racial equity within academia and society as a whole.

CSSS commits to forming an anti-racism task group by the end of 2020 to develop a strategy to understand and address systemic racism and other forms of discrimination within our organization. This strategy will include actionable items and resources for integrating anti-racist and anti-oppressive policies and practices into our society operations.

This statement, the committee, and the future anti-racism strategy will be used as a launching point and as a means of holding ourselves accountable to change. We are committed to the ongoing process of unlearning racism and other forms of discrimination and using our actions to counter the systemic racism that exists in Canada and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. If you wish to participate or offer feedback to the anti-racism task group please contact Nathan Basiliko
