New Diversity Tool Available from MissionSTEM — Unconscious Bias in STEM: Addressing the Challenges
On behalf of NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden, the agency’s Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity is pleased to announce exciting new content available on the MissionSTEM website. The newest civil rights technical assistance tool for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, grantees is titled “Unconscious Bias in STEM: Addressing the Challenges.” This tool is designed to provide STEM program administrators, faculty, staff and students with a better understanding and appreciation of the ways in which unconscious bias can impact the STEM environment, as well as fresh perspectives on how to avoid the pitfalls of such bias and maintain compliance with the law. The tool is also designed to support equal opportunity compliance officials, such as Title IX coordinators, in their efforts to help ensure equal opportunities and to advance diversity and inclusion in STEM programs.
To view the tool, visit http://missionstem.nasa.gov/eLearn.html.
NASA’s Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity hope you find these materials helpful in your continuing efforts to advance equal opportunity compliance and diversity and inclusion at your respective institutions.
