ESIP Update: Martin Luther King, Jr Day

Today we celebrate the power of community, collaboration, and inclusiveness.

ESIP News and Events

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

The ESIP offices are closed today in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. But that doesn't mean our community is not at work to support a just world through actionable Earth science data. 

Two ESIP core values are inclusiveness and collaboration. Here is what they mean to us:

  • Inclusiveness – We put people first and recognize, appreciate, and cultivate diversity in our global community.
  • Collaboration – We work together. We provide the space and the resources to gather people to take on challenges that cannot be solved alone.
