Seeking Co-Chairs for Cross-AG Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility Working Group

The Cross-AG Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility Working Group (IDEA WG) is looking for a new co-chair! The IDEA WG aims to support NASA and the Planetary Science Assessment/Analysis Groups (AGs) in building a more inclusive planetary science community by developing and disseminating relevant resources, findings, and recommendations. The WG periodically reports to the Planetary Science Advisory Committee (PAC), which is tasked with advising NASA’s Planetary Science Division.

The two WG co-chairs are responsible for organizing WG meetings, co-creating strategies for advancing IDEA in planetary science, and advocating for the group’s consensus recommendations. Membership is open to all, but you do not need to be a current member of the WG in order to apply for the co-chair position. Applications for the open co-chair position are due by Wednesday, August 31, 2022, and may be submitted in written, video, audio, or other form to xagidea@gmail.com.
