This workshop will focus on strategies for increasing the diversity of students graduating from all types of programs with a substantial geoscience component and supporting their successful entry into the workforce. Participants will showcase successful strategies employed by their own programs including traditional departmental programming, inter institutional programming, community-based approaches, and opportunities made possible through technology. We welcome participation from 2 and 4 year programs in any aspect of the geosciences, environmental science, geography and other allied fields.
This workshop is open to 30 representatives of academic programs (by application). There is no registration fee to attend. Read the workshop overview for details about the workshop goals, schedule, expectations for participants, and how to apply.
