Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) - Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA)


Vision: Turning the ocean observing workforce into one that is fully inclusive of excellence across the social spectrum.

Mission: Supporting U.S. IOOS, including the eleven regional observing networks and the IOOS office to engage underrepresented communities in ocean observing activities in conservation and stewardship. We are committed to making the work of environmental justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion core to what we do and how we operate within the IOOS enterprise, and maximizing our network to make a difference in connecting with underserved communities.
