Broader discussion about best practices and collaborations

  • How can we collaborate more to raise awareness about our programs

  • How to team up for grant submissions, particularly programmatic grants that address the lack of diversity in STEMM

  • How can we use these programs as models for other disciplines, or how to expand existing programs to include other disciplines

  • Should we have a meeting like this annually? If so, the same format? Other ideas
