Increasing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Soil and Agronomic Sciences through K-12 Outreach and Education
ASA, CSSA, SSSA International Annual Meeting
The SSSA K-12 Education and Outreach committee continually organizes and carries out activities, webinars, and workshops geared toward increasing K-12 student interest and participation in soil and agronomic sciences. This presentation highlights the efforts and impact of several committee members in conducting outreach work in their local communities targeted at improving recruitment, retention, and representation of historically marginalized groups- including young women, people of color, and underprivileged youth- in the sciences.
The American Society of Agronomy, the Crop Science Society of America, and the Soil Science Society of America host a premier international scientific meeting that brings together leading and emerging scientific leaders from industry, government agencies, and academic institutions who are all working to advance agronomic, crop and soil sciences.
