The OBPS aims to transparently increase the active representation of diverse groups in an inclusive and equitable way to increase perspectives across collaborations, projects, and organizations within the OBPS community.
An OBPS community, composed of diverse representatives from ocean research, observing, and application communities, collaborating to ensure the value, risks, and impact of ocean practices are holistically understood by all stakeholders.
The Task Team’s mission is:
- To understand levels of underrepresentation of ocean stakeholders in the OBPS community.
- To gather and synthesize community practices concerning diversity, equity, and inclusion to guide OBPS activities.
- To consider options and recommendations to enable inclusion of perspectives, and increase opportunities for under-represented groups to contribute and document practices.
