Diversity in Marine Science (DiMS)
This is a new network which covers all areas of diversity in science including:
- Early Career
The first DiMS meeting was held at the 2016 Biennial Conference in Liverpool. There was a discussion panel of 6 scientists of different genders, career stage, ethnicities and abilities and good attendance by conference delegates given the meeting started at 7.30 am! See this Challenger Wave article from more on the event.
The aim of DiMS is initially to promote awareness and start discussions on some of the key issues UK marine science faces when it comes to diversity in staff and students and to acknowledge these extend beyond women in science.
Watch this space for information on future DiMS events and please get in contact if you would like to host a DiMS event at a SIG meeting.

Ocean Challenge search function
There is a new online search function for all Ocean Challenge issues that allows anyone to easily search for articles on a specific topic. We hope this will be used not just by the marine science community but by educators who would otherwise not have access to such resources.
