2024 Poster Session


These posters are intended to highlight department and units’ top diversity implementation plan goals, their alignment with the Mines DI&A strategic plan and the outcome/impact of those efforts. The new poster template outlines instructions and information needed for posters to capture units’ most important DI&A activities. In addition, posters will be reviewed by a committee and scored. This evaluation rubric can be used to familiarize your DI&A committee with how posters will be evaluated during the Celebration. The top scoring posters will receive Diversity Progress Report awards. Just in case your DI&A committee needs a boost to get started, check out this poster example. Content was graciously provided by the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering (GGE). Mines DI&A expanded on GGE’s content with hypothetical metrics, goals and outcomes to illustrate how to connect units’ work from their diversity progress report activities into the postersIf you have questions or need support, please contact Heather Houlton, Mines DI&A Research Analyst.
