During the GA4GH 9th Plenary meeting in September 2021, I discussed the current progress of the GA4GH Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group, a group that I co-chair. Through deep exploration using an approach to build an “intentional community”, the volunteer group has embarked on three overarching projects: Onboarding Tactics, Increasing Participation Levels, and Building Equity by Design into our standards. This talk describes the progress to date, and encourages the community to get involved and contribute to EDI efforts to effect change.
