NASA launches ‘Mission Equity’ to evaluate barriers for underserved communities”These efforts will help foster NASA’s vision to benefit the quality of life for all on Earth,” agency officials wrote.

In a new initiative that runs until July 12, NASA is inviting the public to share ideas and comments about how the space agency can be inclusive and more representative of the public at large.

On June 15, the space agency announced the program, dubbed Mission Equity, and released a request for information (RFI) called “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities in NASA Programs, Contracts and Grants.”
