Diversity Brochure Working Group
New Working Group Ideas
· A group to focus on education issues (including summer fellows, grad students and post-docs) which could work with APO to build relationships with minority serving institutions.
· A group focusing on obtaining funding for diversity programs such as workshops. NSF and other organizations provide funding for programs to improve Diversity in science and engineering.
· A group focusing on helping PIs with broader impacts that focus on diversity-related issues. This could include holding PI meetings to discuss ideas, and creating a web page on the WHOI Diversity Committee site that would provide information on existing programs and contacts.
· A group focusing on improving diversity in non-scientific hiring.
