Diversity and Inclusion The Alabama Space Grant Consortium supports and upholds the NASA Diversity and Inclusion Policy Statement. “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is committed to a culture of diversity and inclusion, where all employees feel welcome, respected, connected, and engaged. As the world’s leader in aeronautics, space exploration, science, and technology, we embrace the critical importance of cultivating and empowering a diverse and inclusive workforce and work environment-enabling NASA to attract the widest and deepest pools of talent, leverage the capabilities of our exceptional workforce; and empower all personnel to be authentic, to participate, and to fully contribute. We understand this provides NASA access to the highest levels of knowledge, capabilities, creativity, problem solving, decision making, and performance. And this will enable NASA to achieve the greatest mission success.” ASGC works to provide an inclusive and interdisciplinary cohort of students, mentors, affiliates, and more and aligns those efforts with the Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.
