The World is facing “all minds needed” problems, but due to historical systemic structures, all minds have not been fully engaged.

Because the geosciences continue to lag other STEM fields in creating a diverse community of researchers, scholars, and practitioners, disruptive strategies and evidence-based practices are needed to recruit and specifically retain individuals who historically have not been included in geoscience education, research and careers.
