Scope The Fourth Summit on Diversity in the Minerals, Metals, and Materials Profession (DMMM4) will provide novel, actionable, and measurable approaches for improving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through strategies that encompass a broad spectrum of human experiences. Through a combination of inspiring talks, case study and instructional sessions, panel discussions and small group interactive experiences, the Summit intends to equip attendees with the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to achieve results on prevalent DEI topics.

* Introduction to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
* STEM Outreach Case Studies and Best Practices
* Combating Biases in STEM
* The Invisible Pipeline: Recruitment/Retention of Underrepresented Minorities
* Inclusivity in Hiring and Leadership Development
