ESIP is a place to … hear it in the words of our community!

At the 2023 July ESIP Meeting, our Communications Director Allison Mills recorded a vox pop audio story to honor our 25 years as a nonprofit while looking ahead to the next 25 years.

Together, we share our values, mission, and vision for a world where data-driven solutions are a reality for all by making Earth Science data actionable by all who need them anytime, anywhere.
