DCL: GOLD-EN EAGER: Cultivating Socially Responsible Atmospheric Scientists through Education, Leadership, and Action (CURATE)

A challenge of note in STEM is that diversity, equity and inclusion is often siloed from many aspects of the scientific process and portions of the atmospheric science scientific community. New approaches and entry points at higher levels of engagement are needed to foster a diverse community of researchers, scholars, and practitioners in the geosciences. To this end, the PIs will develop a novel hybrid (face-to-face and online components) atmospheric science course designed to break down traditional barriers for entry into diversity, equity and inclusion engagement by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. The course will provide the structure and resources to help participants emerge as new diversity leaders, better prepared to address issues of participation, representation and inclusion challenges that are uniquely faced in the geosciences.
