Call for Volunteers – DEIA Community of Practice

Volunteers Needed!

C4DISC New DEIA Community of Practice

C4DISC is seeking volunteers to help manage a new Community of Practice, a virtual space for peer learning around DEIA in scholarly communications – for those with a dedicated DEIA role or with a DEIA remit as part of their role, whether in a paid or volunteer capacity. 

Working group members will be responsible for chairing virtual discussions every other month that will combine time for open discussion with topical breakout discussions based on suggestions from participants ahead of the meetings. Volunteer leaders will solicit topics from participants, plan and facilitate the virtual discussions, as well as help promote engagement on the Community’s Listserv. We estimate the time commitment as approximately 2 hours per month.


If you would like to apply to participate in this working group, please complete and submit the application online by the deadline of Friday March 31. Please enter COP in the field asking which working group you are applying for. 

Volunteers for standing working groups serve a two-year term. Any person interested in furthering the work of C4DISC can join a working group. You do not have to be employed by a member or partner organization to get involved.

Please share widely with all who may be interested, both within your organisation and wider community. Send any questions you may have to
