The INCLUDES National Network is deeply saddened to share the news that Retired United States Representative and Chairwoman, the Honorable Eddie Bernice Johnson, has died. Please read President Biden’s statement on her passing. There are also many news articles that share information about her impact and legacy, such as: "Former U.S. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, Black Democratic trailblazer, dies at 89".

We are so honored that she joined the August 2023 National Network Convening for the Fireside Chat with Dr. Tori Rhoulac Smith to share her story. Scroll down on this page to watch a video of their conversation or view it on YouTube. NSF's Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Initiative is part of her legacy, and we are honored to continue to work toward the goal of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive STEM ecosystem. 

NSF's Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES National Network brings together the power of many by connecting educational institutions, individuals, alliances, pilot programs, federal agencies, and other entities across the nation working to change inequitable systems, ensure accessibility and inclusivity, and broaden participation in STEM education and careers.  Join Us!

As we reflect on lessons from NSF’s 2023 Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES National Network held in August, we would like to share the featured video, below, of the Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson’s Fireside Chat with Dr. Tori Rhoulac Smith. We also invite you to watch the Student Voices Panel with Dr. Erin Lynch and encourage you and the entire INCLUDES community to reflect on the Chairwoman’s legacy and students’ experiences navigating in STEM fields. Both discussions highlight why we all engage in this work and the urgency with which we must proceed to broaden participation in STEM.
