NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Coordination Hub
The INCLUDES Coordination Hub supports the Network, with the goal of “build(ing) a Network…that will ultimately enable collective efforts aimed at increasing the active participation of those who have been traditionally underserved and underrepresented in particular STEM fields or across all fields of STEM.”
To implement our vision and achieve these goals, the Hub:
- Connects people and organizations to facilitate relationships, expand and diversify the Network, and support Network members in building capacity in areas they identify.
- Curates shared resources, measures, expertise, and experiences to build Network members’ capacity to engage in systems change and support more equitable, diverse, and inclusive STEM fields—and to track and measure impact.
- Catalyzes collective action with a focus on influencing systems change and supporting efforts that create more equitable, diverse, and inclusive STEM fields.
- (Builds and Supports) Community with and for all members and amplify and elevate voices of participants and members of communities who have been historically excluded from STEM.
The Hub is composed of five organizations with a range of expertise working as a collaborative entity; our structure mirrors the collaborative, multi-organization, cross-sector structure of the NSF INCLUDES-funded Alliances and we use the Five Elements to guide our own work and strengthen our collaboration.
