AGI Invites Applications for New Scholarship for Advancing Diversity in the Geoscience Profession

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce its new Scholarship for Advancing Diversity in the Geoscience Profession. The scholarship is a one-time $5,000 award supporting geoscience graduate studies by a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who self-identifies as a member of an underrepresented minority (Black, Indigenous, or Person of Color) and is within two semesters of completing a recognized geoscience program.

Diversity in the Geosciences – a Look at the Data and the Actions of the Community

Friday, November 13, 2020

This month's Heads and Chairs webinar will examine the issue of diversity in the geosciences.  First we will look at the data about diversity, including current trends and drivers, and challenges in effectively measuring progress.   Then there will be a look at what the geoscience societies are doing to address the challenges to making the discipline inclusive and representative and a look at some of the current steps.  Finally, as an example, AGU will discuss their new diversity initiative LANDInG.   These presentations will be followed by time for a discussion about both what is presented and the experiences department leadership are having with addressing diversity in their programs.
