December 1 and 15, 2021
2:00 – 6:00 PM Eastern, 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM Pacific
As part of the COME IN project, we aim to bring together scientists, stakeholders, and partners from various COM science disciplines for a series of facilitated virtual and in-person engagement opportunities beginning with a virtual charrette that will take place on December 1 and 15, 2021. The objectives of this two-day event are to:
- Identify who is actively engaged in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and/or Justice (DEIJ) internship/fellowship and conference programming
- Understand best practices currently being implemented in the COM science enterprise (internship, fellowship, and DEIJ conference activities)
- Identify and understand institutional roadblocks (what has not worked and why), and highlight challenges
The COME IN team would like to thank everyone who registered for our first event. We are looking forward to bringing together members of our community to discuss what is working and not working with respect to increasing participation of students from historically marginalized and underserved communities in coastal and marine sciences, and why. Featured panelists include Dr. Brandon Jones, Dr. Brittany King, Catalina Martinez, Dr. Corey Garza, and Dr. Jeannette Davis, among others. We will be sharing resources and materials prior to the Charrette, so check back soon for more information.
