Diversity & Inclusion
Aero/Astro’s work on diversity and inclusion is underway. In July 2020 we started an Aero/Astro diversity and inclusion committee to begin researching, thinking, and collaborating to forge a new pathway forward.
Like our efforts on this important topic, this web site is a work in progress.
Comments? Questions? Suggestions? We'd love to hear from you!
