Objective 5. Increase awareness of the reality and consequences of global climate change among scientists and the public.
Objective 6. Increase the role of Earth sciences in informing policy and mitigating impacts of natural disasters.
Goal: Talent Pool
Objective 1. Increase our understanding of the real barriers to gender and ethnic diversity and involvement within AGU and within Earth and space science.
Objective 2. Enhance engagement and involvement in AGU of students and early career scientists.
Objective 3 Identify career alternatives within Earth and space science and subsequent career paths available.
Objective 4. Enhance mutual support and networking opportunities for students and early career scientists.
Objective 5. Increase participation of underrepresented populations.
