The goal of the study is to recommend actions to increase diversity, inclusion, equity and accessibility in the leadership of space mission proposals submitted to the NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) competed space mission programs.  In response to a request from the NASA SMD, this study will examine the current mission proposal system at NASA SMD and identify humanistic elements of the system that may present impediments to applicants, limiting the diversity of the competitive pool.  As part of its work, the committee will engage with a wide range of experts in the relevant social science and space science communities.
