DEIA in Astrobiology:
What’s Working, What’s Not, & What Could Be
Let’s continue the conversation and develop our movement to
evolve our community in the right direction!
We are in a time of singular opportunity to co-create anti-racist culture in our selves, lives, and workplaces. The reexamination of policies and practices of DEIA at our affiliated institutions is a major part of this process. This session solicits abstracts describing examples of DEIA policy and practice at your institution that are successful, or those that are incomplete and can be framed as case studies from which we can all learn. This session also solicits abstracts describing our aspirations for ideal DEIA policy and practice, describing potential ideas, programs, scenarios, etc. that could be implemented. Please include a discussion of why things are working or not working, and what is needed to bring envisioned ideas to life.
Session Conveners: Melissa Kirven-Brooks, PhD, Aaron Gronstal, PhD, and Daniella Scalice from the NASA Astrobiology Program.
