NASA Inclusion Plan Resources Website Now Available
Inclusion is a core NASA value, as described in the NASA policy statement on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA). Additionally, Strategy 4.1 of “Science 2020-2024: A Vision for Scientific Excellence” states that NASA should “increase the diversity of thought and backgrounds represented across the entire SMD portfolio through a more inclusive environment.” In keeping with this core value, some NASA Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) programs are piloting the addition of a required Inclusion Plan.
NASA’S Science Mission Directorate (SMD)’s Inclusion Plan Resources website is now live! This page contains a variety of resources and materials to help with the writing, revision, and implementation of Inclusion Plans. Links to the Inclusion Plan Best Practices Workshop recordings are also included. View the full Inclusion Plan Resources website at Inclusion Plan Resources.
The website provides resources to support writing, revision, and implementation of Inclusion Plans. This includes NASA’s definitions of DEIA, materials supporting required elements of a plan, and other resources to facilitate the realization of a successful plan.
