Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility

In 660 We Celebrate All of Our Stars

Here, in 660, as well as across NASA Goddard we embrace Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility. From different cultural backgrounds to the people with a range of disabilities we are devoted to embracing and empowering everyone equally by creating and maintaining opportunities for engagement, education, and employment for all. In 660 we aim to foster culture that promotes open-mindedness, inclusivity, and compassion in all ways throughout our division.
