Committee on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI)

Concerns about racism and the Society’s lack of racial diversity have circulated at SHOT for many years. But these only rose to prominence in discussions about SHOT’s present and future after the US uprisings of 2020. In response to an upswell from the membership, SHOT created a Standing Committee on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in 2021-22 to address these concerns in a sustained manner. REDI’s primary goal is to address systemic and epistemic racism at SHOT and in the global intellectual field it represents. Along the way and as an integral part of this endeavor, REDI is also working on other inclusion challenges, particularly those related to accessibility.

To succeed, this endeavor requires considerable labor, as well as material support. Please consider contributing to our work by donating here! If you’re interested in volunteering for the committee, please write [email protected].
