Diversity Speaker Series 2016


2016 NRAO Diversity Speaker Series


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. When possible, talks will be broadcast to all NRAO sites, and recorded, so that those who are interested may view the material when time permits.

With the speaker's permission, each presentation will be available for viewing from the NRAO website.

Note that some talks are not filmed, or broadcast, by the speaker's request.
