The second cohort of Academy participants will focus on building capacity for those individuals at mid-career and in positions to effect change at a U.S. academic, academic-adjacent, or research institutions.
The LANDInG leadership team, comprised of ~30 Steering Committee and Advisory Board members, and the external evaluation team determined that the composition of the first two cohorts should be similar in career stage and DEI leadership. Future cohorts of participants in the LANDInG Academy will comprise geoscientists at different career stages, from other career sectors as well as those from around the world.
Update on LANDInG Academy Cohort 2
After deep reflection on the mission and goals of the AGU LANDInG program using feedback from potential applicants, our Steering Committee, and our Advisory Board, the team recognizes our need to better support a wider audience of emerging DEI leaders. To that end, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the start of the next cohort to December of 2023. This decision will allow us the time to strengthen resources, partnerships, and networking opportunities that are integral to LANDInG Academy.
