AAG ALIGNED Department Toolkit (Beta)
Supporting Diversity Definition, Activities, Plans, and Assessment
The AAG ALIGNED Project is developing a spatial decision support tool to aid geography and geoscience departments to access the latest information and advice on how to enhance diversity, promote inclusion, and broaden participation in their academic programs.

ALIGNED team and pilot departments test the toolkit at the AAG Annual Meeting. 2011.
Our advisors with expertise in geosciences, education, diversity, spatial analysis and other relevant fields are contributing their extensive experience working with diversity enhancement on their campuses, including from community colleges to doctoral universities at a broad set of geographic locations across the country. The diverse team itself represents traditionally underrepresented groups, including women, ethnic minority, gay, and foreign-born researchers in recognition of the value of multiple perspectives to help mobilize and retool departments with better ways to learn where to find and how to connect with underrepresented groups, including how to convey the relevance of geography and geoscience careers.
