Diversitying the Geosciences: Lessons in Culture, Inclusion and Community Engagement

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

Despite efforts to increase recruit, the geosciences lag behind other STEM fields in gender and minority representation. The disconnect between recruitment and retention has motivated national efforts to consider why our field has failed to reflect the communities we serve. Dr. Lora Harris will present an overview of this challenge along with her efforts to tackle the problem through basic research into the mechanisms and barriers affecting representation and specific programs designed to make progress towards diversifying our field.
