This workshop focused 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 showcased successful strategies employed by their own programs including traditional departmental programming, inter-institutional programming, community-based approaches, and opportunities made possible through technology. We had participation from 2 and 4 year programs from across the geosciences, environmental science, geography and other allied fields.
