10 July 2018 Diversity at ESO: Paranal Observatory
Author Affiliations +
As diversity continues to grow in astronomy, creating working environments that are equally beneficial to all employees is imperative. Diversity in astronomical observatories is evident in a number of employee characteristics, including gender, race/ethnicity, age.

Since June 2017, ESO has created its Diversity and Inclusion Committee gathering a variety of employees from the different sites, with different backgrounds.

We will focus here on the status of the diversity and the strategies to develop a skilled and diverse operational workforce in the ESO observatories.
