Sustaining Equity-Driven Systems Change

The 2023 NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES National Network National Convening with be held in person on August 2-4, 2023, at the Westin City Center in Washington, DC.

The Convening objectives are to celebrate the INCLUDES National Network, learn from people most directly affected by NSF INCLUDES, build and strengthen relationships among INCLUDES National Network members, elevate and strengthen commonalities and connections across broadening participation efforts, and learn about actions we can take to sustain our work. We would like to collaborate with members of the Alliance Collective to ensure that the Convening centers the needs of Network members and participants/partners in this work – to reflect on these draft ideas together and then to operationalize our collective “big ideas” into strands, sessions, workshops, etc.
