Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and NAGT
Our mission is to support a diverse, inclusive, and thriving community of educators and education researchers to improve teaching and learning about the Earth. That mission guides all of our work, but special attention needs to be paid to diversity, equity, and inclusion to assure that we are also making progress towards our goal of driving change toward and equitable and inclusive system of geoscience education.
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee facilitates the organization's efforts to build an inclusive and equitable organization, and achieve its goals related to diversity of its membership, leadership, committees, award winners, and participants in all events. The DEI Committee works with the Executive Committee to establish metrics for and assess progress towards diversity goals, recommend and work to implement activities to promote and increase membership of groups that are currently underrepresented in NAGT, recommend activities to increase and support participation of underrepresented groups in NAGT programming, and recommend and work to implement strategies to broaden nominations for awards, committee positions, and leadership opportunities.
There are several ways to get involved. If you are interested in joining NAGT's DEI Committee, please nominate yourself. We also invite you to check out the Diversity Stories Project.
NAGT has developed a statement on racial injustice.
