Speaker(s): Sharon Milgram, PhD, Director, OITE
This event is recommended for: Postbacs; Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows.
Diversity.... difference.... post-racial..... multicultural - all buzzwords we regularly hear. But how often do we as future scientists, healthcare providers, science educators, and policy experts stop to consider our own reactions to diversity and difference? Furthermore, why does this matter to our research and how do we build inclusive and welcoming work environments? This workshop will examine the meaning of diversity in the lives of individuals, groups, and communities, as well as the larger society and scientific community.
