Inclusion & Etiquette: SKA Principles of Collaboration

The SKA is pleased to introduce a new initiative entitled: Inclusion & Etiquette: SKA Principles of Collaboration, whose intent is to define a framework to ensure a productive and enjoyable meeting for everyone. The SKA is committed to ensuring and fostering equality and diversity amongst its community and as such, the Principles of Collaboration document will continue to evolve over time, as we receive constructive inputs from our community on the principles addressed therein. Please take a few moments to read this document for your information. Click here to view the document.
