Dialogue on creating safe and inclusive spaces for students in the lab and in the field | Equity Research Symposium

Dialogue on creating safe and inclusive spaces for students in the lab and in the field

Part of the Equity Research Symposium Talley Student Union, Room 3222 on Wednesday, 3/8 @ 1:45pm-3:00pm


Our goal is to bring people together from diverse disciplines and departments who have experience creating inclusive spaces and/or have already developed resources and tools to prepare their students entering the field and / or laboratory settings. Our group acknowledges that students with identities that have been historically and systemically excluded and marginalized, including minoritized races and ethnicities, international students, and gender and sexual minorities, face unique challenges in the lab and field. Therefore, we would like to join existing parallel efforts and amplify each other’s work by sharing experiences, resources, and encouraging commitments.
