Abstract: In this interactive discussion, using a combination of presentations, case studies, and breakouts, you will work with colleagues to develop and refine your command of Conceptual Frameworks and the Challenges and Opportunities relevant to our work to make our disciplines more inclusively excellent. Rather than promising ‘answers’ or a ‘tool box,’ our goal is for you to leave the workshop with concepts and critical questions that will help you see the problem with
‘new eyes,’ hopefully enabling you to more effectively identify and change existing practices, policies, beliefs, and assumptions that maintain inequities in STEM.
Original presentations from the SABER seminar series: “A call to action: Striving for racial justice in academic biology.”
