2021 Diversity, Inclusivity and Equal Employment Opportunity Award


The NIST Academic “Dream Team” is recognized for outstanding achievements in promoting opportunities to foster a diverse NIST community and contributing to an inclusive environment at NIST.  Dr. Pritchett, Dr. Toliver, Ms. Robinson and Ms. Denis bring passionate enthusiasm and dedication to attracting a diverse applicant pool to the many NIST science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) academic programs.   Through the efforts of this group, NIST has expanded its outreach to minority-serving educational institutions and potential applicants from underrepresented communities, thus generating a more diverse applicant pool for NIST academic programs.
