Open to all! This is an interactive workshop to create concrete STEM equity and anti-racism plans and action items for institutions/organizations to implement.
In the last few months, inequities due to COVID-19 and racial protests relating to police violence have increased conversation about anti-racism, diversity, and inclusion. Often, in the STEM community, there is a belief that the STEM disciplines are neutral to issues of race. However, as human enterprises, they are not.
In this session, we will have the opportunity to reflect on how we can translate conversations into practical applications to promote equity and anti-racism policies in our professional contexts as leaders in STEM and STEM education.
Workshop Led By Dr. Laurie Nsiah-Jefferson
Dr. Laurie Nsiah-Jefferson is currently the Director for the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy and the Graduate Program Director for the Gender, Leadership, and Public Policy Program at University of Massachusetts Boston.
