The IAU has published (January 11th, 2021)  the document Springboard to Action, which outlines concrete actions that can be taken by individuals, national members, and national organisations to improve equity, inclusion and diversity in Astronomy.  Springboard to Action builds on the discussions carried out at IAU Symposium 358 on “Astronomy for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion — a roadmap to action within the framework of the IAU centennial anniversary” held in Tokyo, Japan in 2019 that brought together 124 participants from 31 different countries. This document is a legacy of the IAU’s centenary celebrations, the International Year of Astronomy 2009 (IYA2009), and the activities of the IAU Working Group on Astronomy for Equity and Inclusion. It also expands on the IAU’s Code of Conduct and the IAU 2020–2030 Strategic Plan.

Fragments of Extinction is doing part of this work».
