Free workshop! Limited to 30 participants.

Fostering diversity and equity is the responsibility of all scientists, and requires active contributions from all members of the scientific community. Unchallenged biased beliefs and practices shape the social interactions and learning environment of a science trainee, as well as their professional beliefs and interactions as a future STEM professional.

Join us in unpacking our individual beliefs, and understand how to recognize and respond to bias and microaggressions. Supporting materials will be provided for developing skills to improve the STEM culture by highlighting the educational benefits of diversity and inclusive practices throughout our future careers.
