The National Weather Service (NWS) vision of building a Weather Ready Nation is powerful and has engaged the entire weather-water-climate Enterprise. As we continue to transform the way we serve our partners and the public, including those most vulnerable, the NWS has established priorities and action strategies for the near and long term. In addition to weather services and initiatives, we will discuss how the NWS will interface with NOAA’s new Climate Ready Nation initiative, which was developed in the wake of increasing frequency of extreme weather events across the globe. Technical infrastructure of the agency will also be highlighted, as advancements in infrastructure like NOAA’s Supercomputers and Cloud Infrastructure will be vital to meeting the NWS’s mission into the future. Finally, we will discuss the most important aspect of the agency - its people. Deputy Assistant Administrator Mary Erickson serves as champion of programs to address Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Burnout within the NWS. Join us to discuss these items as well as opportunities for you to make NOAA or the NWS a part of your future career prospects.
