Social justice issues, such as race relations, gender equality and disability rights, are often seen as irrelevant to us as scientists in the research community.

In this talk, I will discuss my new role as equity and inclusion officer for Dutch astronomy. I will share updates on efforts to promote equity, inclusion and diversity in astronomy. I will discuss current activity, implications and connections for Dutch astronomy and physics, and how to become involved or partner with these efforts.
