Making Graduate Sciences More Inclusive

With: Dorothy Tovar, Sergio Redondo, Muryam Gourdet,Tiara Moore & Kishana Taylor

Achieving diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is a goal at most graduate schools in the U.S. But significant changes to the graduate science experience will be required if universities truly want to attract outstanding and diverse researchers as well as create affirming and inclusive environments. How can you identify an institution/lab that promotes your scientific talents and values your individuality? Is it possible for academic science to be more expansive and welcoming especially for marginalized groups? And are there ways to frame or conduct research more equitably? Join this discussion featuring graduate students and postdocs advancing science in their respective fields while also leading on DEI: Dorothy Tovar and Sergio Redondo (Stanford) with special guests Muryam Gourdet (UCSF), Tiara Moore (UW) and Kishana Taylor (Carnegie Mellon).

Woods will be hosting a series of workshops throughout 2020-21 for graduate students and postdocs which provide opportunities to engage in conversations around racial and social justice issues in STEM and academia as well as explore environmental justice topics affecting communities across the U.S.
