Equity Statement and Code of Conduct

TeVPA 2022 Statement on Equity, Diversity, Inclusion:
We are committed to counteracting discrimination in physics and astronomy, and developing a climate of educational equity that recognizes and respects the equal dignity and worth of all who seek to participate in the life, work and mission of astrophysical research. Such a climate is created and maintained by developing a field-wide commitment to and understanding of research equity, supported by policies, programs, practices and traditions that facilitate individuals and equity-seeking groups free, safe, and full participation. 

Please contact the organizers of TeVPA 2022 (tevpa2022@gmail.com) if you have any questions, concerns, or recommendations for achieving these equity, diversity, and inclusion goals.
