The National Academies is undertaking a new study that will recommend actions to increase diversity, inclusion, equity and accessibility in the leadership of competed space missions proposed to the NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD). In response to a request from the NASA SMD, this study will examine the current mission proposal system at NASA SMD and identify elements of the system that may present impediments to applicants, limiting the diversity of the competitive pool. As part of its work, the committee will engage with a wide range of experts in the relevant social science and space science communities.
Nominees with backgrounds in the following areas are encouraged:
Please submit your nominations using this form. Nominations will receive maximum consideration if submitted by 17 August 2020.
