We hear a lot about equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) these days and as scientists, regardless of gender, ethnicity or other aspects of our humanity, we are all increasingly expected to be able to speak knowledgeably to EDI principles in applications for positions, recruitment to teams, grant writing, teaching and other aspects of our work. However, there is relatively little training in these areas for young scientists in Canada. Each network participating in the SMRTS program is committed to the professional development of the next generation of scientists and researchers, and so this webinar is aimed at trainees who are interested in developing and improving their core competencies in the area of EDI in science. The whys, where, hows and whats of EDI will be discussed and there will be ample opportunity for questions.
This webinar is part of the SMRTS (Sharing Multi-network Resources for Trainee Success) Seminars Program, a professional development initiative between 10 national and provincial networks aimed at providing the best possible programming to our respective trainees.
