NES-LTER Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Together, individuals from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the University of Rhode Island, the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, the Northeast Fisheries Science Center, and Wellesley College cooperatively create the Northeast U.S. Shelf Long Term Ecological Research (NES-LTER) team.

As a working research team, we strive to create and maintain a diverse and inclusive culture built on mutual respect and understanding. We welcome and encourage diversity in our team members. We are committed to a sustained, multi-institution effort to advance inclusive excellence and foster belonging. We seek to create pathways of opportunity beginning with primary education and leading to higher education, post graduate work, research and lifetime careers. We believe that a diverse team will give us greater understanding of the scientific questions that we are exploring in the NES-LTER project.

Diversity within the NES-LTER team means understanding, respecting, and valuing differences in age, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, and veteran status.
