Abstract: The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) and the Education and Public Outreach (EPO) Department serve the strategic goal of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) to broaden public awareness of, support for, and participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). ODI operates a suite of programs designed to support underrepresented minority undergraduate, graduate students in pursuit of careers in STEM. EPO highlights the discoveries, technologies, and careers pioneered and exemplified by the NRAO via multipurpose engagement strategies that include face-to-face and standalone learning programs, products, and public services for the general public and K-12 students, with attention to reaching diverse audiences. These established and diverse programs are described, along with proposals for new, unique opportunities enabled by the development and realization of a next-generation Very Large Array (ngVLA).
