Workshop Agenda

The “Broadening Participation in Future Telescopes” workshop generated recommendations for creating more diverse and inclusive telescope workforce communities. This small workshop was requested and funded by TMT to further inform their plan for broadening participation, and recommendations can be used by current and future telescopes to shape their own workforce and diversity plans.  Participants considered goals, strategies, and outcomes achievable by efforts at the undergraduate through early career levels, professional development of those currently in the workforce, and practices and infrastructure that support broader access for scientific users. 


This workshop was funded and hosted by the Thirty Meter Telescope International Observatory and the Institute for Scientist & Engineer Educators
