The below grid represents a collection of key actions and corresponding sample strategies on how to promote diversity and inclusion in science and technology workforces. The actions in this grid are designed to help impact representation and inclusion of all of the people of the United States, including groups that are underrepresented in some fields or at certain organizational levels, which may include women, racial and ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and more. When considering actions in this grid, be mindful of intersectionality: ensure there is an awareness and consideration of issues that apply to people who identify as being from more than one underrepresented background—people should not have to choose between facets of their identities. The actions listed here span four areas: leadership; retention and advancement; hiring pathways; and the talent ecosystem. What works in one workplace may not work in all workplaces, and this document is not intended to be prescriptive, but rather to suggest strategies that have led to success for some.
