Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI) Seminars
In collaboration with the Marine Social Science Network (MarSocSci) and Sustainable Management of Marine Resources (SMMR), the MSCC Social Science Task group are planning a series of seminars on EDI (Equality, Diversity and Equality) and the marine environment. This is to promote understanding of the relationship between EDI and the marine environment and how these influence engagements with marine and coastal spaces. The seminars will provide an opportunity to learn from and engage with other experts, including accomplished researchers and practitioners, and share best practice and establish evidence gaps.

The first seminar of the series is on the topic of ‘Disability and Access’ and will include the following speakers:

Dr Sheena Asthana (University of Plymouth)

Sheena is a Professor at the University of Plymouth and works in health and education with a particular interest in social deprivation in coastal communities, including sustainability and resilience of coastal communities and access to opportunities.
