Abstract: NRAO is committed to recruiting and hiring a diverse workforce, but stats show underrepresented minority (URM) students move away from STEM fields as they progress in school. In response, NRAO partnered with a number of HBCUs and the National Society of Black Physicists to create a competitive program designed to support URM students through their undergrad into grad school and/or STEM career. We report on the strategies and successes of the National Astronomy Consortium, now in its sixth year, and on the new EPO programs that will extend the diversity pipeline from high school to postgrad.
