Do you have a great idea to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within INFORMS?
Do you have a great idea to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within INFORMS? The INFORMS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Ambassadors Program will bring together groups of academic and practitioner members, graduate and undergraduate students, post-docs, and staff who will individually and/or collectively work on initiatives to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive INFORMS community. The program is intended to provide a platform for our members to engage in DEI initiatives in a variety of areas including workplace practices, teaching, and research, and leverage our capacities as individuals (practitioners, researchers, educators, students, and staff) to contribute to improving diversity, equity, and inclusion among the broader INFORMS community. Up to 15 projects will be funded.
For past projects, please see https://connect.informs.org/diversity/ambassador-program. For the recorded videos of the "DEI Ambassador Program" session (MC42, held on Monday Nov 9, 2020 at 2:00 pm) please refer to the INFORMS Annual Meeting website.
