NOAA encourages applicants and awardees to support the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion when writing their proposals and performing their work.

NOAA defines diversity as the mixture of the unique attributes that shape an individual’s identity which they bring into the workplace to help NOAA accomplish its goals (1).

Diversity refers to demographic diversity (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation), experiential diversity (e.g., affinities, hobbies, and abilities), and cognitive diversity (e.g., sensory processing and problem solving).

Equity is defined as the consistent and systematic fair, just, and impartial treatment of all individuals, including individuals who belong to underserved communities that have been denied such treatment (2,3).

NOAA defines Inclusion as a culture that values the unique attributes of all team members.

Inclusion is an environment which is respectful, collaborative, supportive, and one that allows for equal access (1).

Inclusion requires active and intentional engagement on the part of everyone and provides a feeling of belonging.

By promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion NOAA seeks to improve the creativity, productivity, and the vitality of its research community.

The required LOI should be sent by e-mail to nccos.grant.awards@noaa.gov.

Full proposals will not be considered if a LOI was not submitted.
