2023 Culturally Inclusive Planetary Engagement Workshops
Planetary scientists and astrobiologists (including graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, engineers and technicians) and informal (out-of-school time) educators are invited to apply to attend a Culturally Inclusive Planetary Engagement professional development workshop. During the workshop, scientists and educators are paired together and supported in bi-directional conversations around diversity and inclusion in engaging Black and Latinx audiences in planetary science. Participants also co-create and lead hands-on activities during a public engagement event following the workshop held in collaboration with a local youth-serving organization. These events allow workshop participants the opportunity to practice engagement strategies discussed in the workshop. Locations include Puerto Rico (November 2nd-4th).
