We present a new initiative by the Women in Astronomy Forum at Space
Telescope Science Institute (STScI) to increase gender diversity and inclusion
in STScI’s scientific committees and the activities they generate. This
initiative offers new and uniform guidelines on binary gender representation
goals for each committee and recommendations on how to achieve them in a
homogeneous way, as well as metrics and tools to track progress towards defined
goals. While the new guidelines presented in the paper focus on binary gender
representation, they can be adapted and implemented to support all minority
groups. By creating diverse committees and making them aware of, and trained on
implicit bias, we expect to create a diverse outcome in the activities they
generate, which, in turn, will advance science further and faster.
