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!
Thank you to the TMS Foundation for its support of the 4th Diversity in Minerals, Metals, and Materials Professions Summit.
