A planning committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will convene and conduct two public workshops (east and west coasts) to explore best practices for an inclusive and equitable ocean. Discussions at the workshops will include: sharing of stakeholder concerns regarding inclusion and equity; approaches for broader involvement of diverse communities in contributing to and determining needs for ocean science for sustainable development; resources and guidelines for furthering inclusion and equity; methodologies and metrics for implementing best practices; additional competencies needed in the decade(s) ahead; and examples of programs that have succeeded in, or aspired to address, various aspects of inclusion and equity. Participants in the workshops will be asked to offer suggestions for actions that incorporate inclusion and equity principles into the topical themes as part of the process for developing and implementing research programs for the Ocean Decade. Select volunteers from the workshop planning committee will also participate in the topical themes workshops to ensure integration of discussions from the foundational themes into the topical themes.
