Diversity Speaker Series 2017
2017 NRAO Diversity Speaker Series
NRAO’s Diversity Speaker Series was established as part of the observatory’s mission to train –and engage- the next generation of scientists and engineers. NRAO is committed to helping to build the STEM pipeline in minority and under-represented groups. As part of that effort, our Diversity Speaker Series is designed to highlight the accomplishments, and perspectives, of a broad spectrum of speakers, including people who may have taken a non-traditional path to their current positions. Some presentations may be primarily directed toward visiting NRAO summer students; other speakers may focus their talks on important diversity-related issues of particular relevance to NRAO scientists and staff. In all cases, the speakers bring important, unique insights to our organization.
Diversity Speakers may visit, and present from, any one of the NRAO sites; in most cases, time will be allocated to allow NRAO staff to meet the speakers, and ask questions. Whenever possible, talks will be broadcast to all NRAO sites, and recorded. With the speakers’ permissions, the talks will be available for viewing from the NRAO website.
