Using case studies from multiple sites, panelists will share creative pathways for addressing 3 major diversity issues faced by sites: broadening the diversity of students, enhancing staff diversity, and building a site community’s cultural competency. Some of the solutions we’ll discuss include pathways to 1) create a site diversity plan connected to a theory of institutional change; 2) frame funding requests and/or leverage institutional resources to provide cultural competence training; 3) improve job search and hiring practices; 4) partner with diversity-focused organizations (ESA-SEEDS, SACNAS, AISES), tribal colleges, HCBUs, and an LTER student alumni network to broaden applicant pools for student programming.
