Navigating the field of polar research is tricky, especially for people with disabilities. Whilst the field has progressed, there are still accommodations that need to be made, and discussions that need to be had regarding inclusivity. Accessibility in Polar Research (APR) was founded during the pandemic by a small group of disabled researchers who have all faced adversities in the field due to their disabilities. In just under two months, we found ourselves with a platform exceeding 700 followers on Twitter (@accesspolar). Each of us are so incredibly grateful to have been given such a space to facilitate the discussion of making the polar field more accommodating. This talk will give you a little taste of what APR has done, what it is aiming to do in the future and why the polar field needs to become more inclusive (using our experiences). We will also leave you with some of our top tips to make your research more accessible and give you the opportunity to ask us some questions.

This talk is part of the Polar Humanities and Social Sciences ECR Workshop series.
