A call to action: Striving for racial justice in academic biology
Language matters: Considering racial microaggressions in science
Colin Harrison, PhD, Georgia Tech
Kimberly Tanner, PhD, San Francisco State University
Join us for an interactive session where we will explore ways in which racial microaggressions manifest themselves in science. We will discuss what microaggressions are and how they effect underrepresented individuals in an academic setting. We will present several examples of microaggressions and discuss general strategies for confronting them. Participants will brainstorm ideas for ways in which they would approach different microaggression scenarios followed by group discussion.
All talks will be posted online afterwards at: saberbio.wildapricot.org/Diversity_Inclusion
