Scientists around the world express solidarity with people of black color, many of which experience discrimination on a daily basis and are harmed by racism. At AWI we strive for diversity and equality of opportunity, and we stand against racism. We recognise that it is a long journey to full inclusiveness, and that we all have a task in getting there. The journey starts with recognising and reflecting structural deficits and behavioural patterns, with speaking up and with committing deeply to equality and social justice.
