MEPAG Steering Committee Opening for an Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Accessibility (EDIA) Representative

To the MEPAG Community:

The Mars Exploration Program Analysis Group (MEPAG) is committed to working towards building a more diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community. To this end, MEPAG is soliciting an Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility (EDIA) representative to serve on the MEPAG Steering Committee. This is a full Steering Committee position.

Roles and responsibilities include providing expertise and input to the Committee on its activities; working with the rest of the MEPAG Steering Committee to determine measurable actions the Mars community will take to increase its equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility; tracking progress on EDIA initiatives; and serving as one of two MEPAG representatives on the EDIA Working Group Steering Committee. This member would fully support the purposes and initiatives of MEPAG on the MEPAG website.

Like all MEPAG positions, this is a volunteer role. It is expected the time commitment will be ~5 hours per month and the term is expected to last at least 3 years.

Interested applicants should send a 1-page CV and a short statement describing commitment to, and experience with, both Mars exploration and EDIA issues, and how you would work towards inclusion and equity within the Mars community to bcarrier@jpl.nasa.gov by October 14, 2020.

Sincerely,

R. Aileen Yingst
