Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Coordinator (DEI)
The Great Basin Institute (GBI) is an interdisciplinary field studies organization that promotes environmental research, education, and conservation throughout the West. GBI enhances the community engagement through our Interpretative Association operation at the Galena Creek Visitors Center, a USDA Forest Service facility jointly managed by Washoe County. At Galena, GBI offers community activities and events, field studies for schools, and day and residential outdoor education programs for youth. The goal of the Galena Creek Visitor Center is to encourage understanding, appreciation, and appropriate use of the natural, cultural, and historical resources of the Galena Canyon area and the Mount Rose Scenic Byway. This program will extend STEM programming to Lake Tahoe Unified School District students, and implement Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives for STEM education programs offered by the Galena and Taylor Creek Visitor Centers.

Member Duties : The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) VISTA member, will increase visibility and accessibility of low-income youth education programs in the community, specifically in low-income and minority identity-group households. DEI capacity-building will expand the program reach to target populations and ensure that the curriculum supports those audiences in an effective and appropriate manner. The VISTA will establish strong relationships with Title I schools and low-income families. This member will infuse DEI initiatives into each component of the STEM education programs and their curricula, encouraging regular return to programs and long-lasting relationships with our staff, and the environment in which we teach.
