Astronomy for Equity and Inclusion: Globally to Locally

Jake Noel-Storr
University of Groningen

Efforts to make the field of astronomy equitable and inclusive and to use astronomy to motivate equity and inclusion in society are on the increase in all scaled and in all kinds of ways. I will share updates from the International Astronomical Union and European Astornomical Society working groups, as well as more local efforts working towards these goals. I will also share the accessastronony.eu portal, and plans for its development, growth and sustainability. I will share ways across all of these items where the German Astronomical community and German astronomers can have a voice, and get further involved in these efforts.
