The Fourth Summit on Diversity in the Minerals, Metals, and Materials Profession (DMMM4) will provide novel, actionable, and measurable approaches for improving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through strategies that encompass a broad spectrum of human experiences. Programming for this event, scheduled March 2-3, is included as part of your TMS2022 registration, and all TMS2022 attendees are invited to participate.

The DMMM4 Organizing Committee is accepting abstracts presenting current research, case studies, and hands-on/interactive learning activities within the Themes listed in the side menu. Please use this menu to view details and related content on each theme area. For a preview of concepts to be explored at DMMM4, please view the free webinar recordings of the DMMM4 Virtual Keynote Series.

View this introductory message from Aeriel D. Leonard, chair of the DMMM4 Organizing Committee, to learn more about the conference.

Using the recommendations of the 2018 STEM Inclusion Study, funded by the National Science Foundation, as a framework, DMMM4 will equip attendees with the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to achieve results on prevalent DEI topics within four programming pillars:

Inspiring: Leaders in the field will offer motivation and courage for change through their own experiences and journeys in overcoming adversity or making a significant, positive impact in their own workplaces.

Learning: Sessions will feature case studies and detailed information of how DEI strategies were implemented, with an emphasis on defining measurable outcomes.

Doing: Small group, hands-on interactive sessions will enable attendees to develop specific skills that can be applied or shared with others in the workplace.

Sharing: Interactive panel discussions and facilitated small group sessions will give attendees the opportunity to explore complex questions, gain feedback, and contribute to outputs that will guide the future actions of both attendees and the TMS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, including program development for future Diversity Summits.

We look forward to seeing you at DMMM4 as a presenter and/or attendee. To contribute to the program, please submit your abstract by July 1, 2021!
