As the past couple of episodes have dealt with the topics of colonialism in Marine Science and Conservation, they got me thinking about how we could begin to be more inclusive. Obviously, inclusion and equity cannot be solved overnight and I am constantly learning about how colonialism and social justice issues are affecting various communities on a daily basis.
However, as a Science Communicator, I started to think about my podcasts and the other podcasts within the Speak Up For Blue Podcast Network and how we can become more inclusive and diverse in the voices that I heard. I also thought about the lack of diversity in the voices on conservation documentaries.
If we are going to become more inclusive and better at conservation, we need to hear from a more diverse set of science communicators.
