Inclusion Plan Best Practices Workshop
The virtual Inclusion Plan Best Practices Workshop is scheduled for November 1–2, 2022, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT each day.
Inclusion is one of NASA’s core values, and one of the agency’s highest priorities is moving toward an increasingly diverse and inclusive workforce that fully engages varied talents, ideas, and perspectives. Many programs within NASA’s Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) are now requiring proposers to contain an inclusion plan that outlines how the team will work against barriers to create and sustain inclusive work environments and how the team will equip members in such a way that they can go on to lead and contribute to other teams that are diverse and inclusive. As a result, in coordination with social scientists, NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is hosting this Inclusion Plan Best Practices Workshop to discuss best practices to consider when creating and maintaining inclusive teams. Topics will include common barriers to inclusive working environments; recruitment best practices; understanding the distinction between inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility; and more.
The goal of this workshop is to provide proposers with some background and tools needed to be active participants in creating and maintaining inclusive work environments. This workshop is open to any member of the science community and may be of particular interest to those writing ROSES or mission proposals requiring inclusion plans. Registration fees are not being collected for this workshop, but registration is required.
