We have invited undergraduate and post-baccalaureate scientists from sites that believe they are effectively enhancing access to scientific opportunities for those from diverse backgrounds to share their LTER experience. They are not asked to provide solutions - only their experiences learning about the opportunities offered at their LTER, what drove them to apply, and the moments during their experience at the LTER that made them feel most supported as people and as scientists. We will also hear anonymized testimonials solicited over the most recent field season from REUs and post-baccs from historically-excluded groups across the LTER network. We will then break into smaller groups to discuss common threads in their stories and identify levers to use and pitfalls to avoid when attempting to reach these audiences. After reconvening, we will develop guidelines for a “Recruiting and Supporting Beginning Scientists to Enhance DEI” document that can be shared across the LTER network.
