Advocate ESS Prominence

Geoscience profession employment numbers increasing, though ESS major declarations decrease. 
The Lead Cause?
Less ESS class availability in K-12 
with enthused qualified teachers equals less K-12 Students
 likely to pursue ESS majors & professions

Equity in ESS

Inner cities & minority students less likely to receive ESS education & ESS role models leading to a growing disparity of minorities in the space & geosciences
