Diversity, Education and Outreach

  • UNEION (UCAR NCAR Equity and InclusiON) is  a cohort of your colleagues from across UCAR|NCAR. Together, we read, learn and talk about topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. This 4-part course, over 4 months, is an introduction to the ways in which gender and race can affect our experiences in society and the workplace, and offers practical tools for intervening in problematic situations. Each month will focus on a different topic, with some required readings and videos (about 1-2 hours' worth) before each session. Sessions will include a combination of hands-on activities, and discussion about the readings and their relevance to the group's experiences.

  • Faculty on the front lines of experimentation explore new modes for teaching weather and climate in a UCAR-hosted forum on October 16.

  • Chris Davis, ASP Director and Senior Scientist at NCAR, talks about the importance, value, and need for mentorship of tomorrow's scientific workforce with SOARS Protégé, Erin Dougherty.

  • The CISL Outreach Services Group organized the first Workshop on Diversity in the Computational Geosciences in June 2014. This workshop was created to develop and sustain a robust national community dedicated to broadening participation in 21st century geoscience.

Overview

The Office of Diversity, Education and Outreach is responsible for the coordination of valuable, but disparate, education and diversity efforts currently distributed across NCAR, elevating both NCAR’s commitment to Education and Outreach and our institutional values centered on inclusiveness and diversity. The office also works in partnership with the UCAR Community Program Directors and, in particular, with the UCAR Center for Science Education. Importantly, the ultimate goal is to enhance and expand our activities in these areas through the development of new collaborative partnerships and sustainable, externally funded programs.
