Title GCE LTER DEI implementation plan
Archive All Files / Documents / Governance / Policies

The GCE-LTER project wrote a diversity plan in 2012 that laid out broad goals for the project in terms of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). This implementation plan is a follow-up that describes what the project has already done, what specific actions we plan for the next 6 years, and what we hope to accomplish over the longer-term in the area of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for groups such as underrepresented minorities and female scientists who face barriers to participation in research. It also takes stock of our efforts to be thoughtful in our interactions with the local community and to respect the historical ties and knowledge that Native Americans, the Gullah-Geechee community, and others have with our study site. We will assess progress annually, and we welcome your input.
