3. Access and Inclusion to Drive Upcoming AGI Forum
On September 15, 2014, the leadership from many of the major geoscience organizations and societies will be hosted by the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) in Washington, D.C. The topic of this year’s forum will focus on the issues of shortages in the geoscience workforce and the promotion of increased access and inclusion in geoscience training programs. Included in these discussions will be the broadening participation in the geoscience workforce for individuals with disabilities. Our Executive Director, Chris Atchison, has been invited to attend the AGI Leadership Forum and will be speaking on behalf of the IAGD.
