We are soliciting members and input for five working groups for this SAG:

  • Obtaining an overview of existing/ongoing NASA initiatives
  • Opportunities for research/funding at MSIs, CCs, PUIs, etc.
  • Student training programs (including bridge programs)
  • Best practices for diversity, equity, and inclusion in NASA astrophysics (e.g., selection and recruitment)
