Abstract Title: The Access Network: Cultivating Equity and Student Leadership in STEM
Abstract: The Access Network consists of nine university-based programs from across the country working toward a more equitable, inclusive, and accessible physical science community.  While each site differs in their implementations, they share a commitment to five core values: 1) fostering supportive learning communities, 2) engaging students in authentic science, 3) developing students'  professional skills, 4) empowering students to take ownership of their education, and 5) increasing diversity and equity in the physical sciences. The Access Network enhances the efforts of individual organizations by facilitating intersite communication, especially the documenting and sharing of ideas across sites through a variety of network-level activities. In this poster, we articulate our network's goals and activities, describe some positive outcomes, and reflect on areas for future improvement.
