The Biological Sciences Diversity Equity Inclusion and Justice Retreat

Looking Back and Thinking Forward: Developing a Diverse Faculty

Thank you for Attending

Please find our resources below!

The Premise of the Program

The Biological Sciences Division is constantly striving to create new knowledge on the cutting edge of research and technology. To do so effectively we must also constantly research and repair systematic disparities, including those that our division directly confronts. These systemic inequities often go unnoticed as they are embedded in our policies, practices, traditions and norms. During our annual Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Retreat, we take a step back and examine our practices and our culture to identify and disentangle institutional racism, sexism, homophobia, and ableism from the work we do. The retreat serves as an opportunity to pause and ask hard questions, examine the sociological literature that guides our growth, and listen to the leaders and change makers who are already doing the work here on campus.

Join us on June 5th, together we can look back and learn from our past and think forward to build a more diverse academy for the future.

The Programming

This year we’ve chosen to focus on two areas for examination and improvement. Student Support Resources and Faculty Hiring and Diversification. Attendees can engage in either of these workshop tracks which will present an opportunity to reflect on how the BSD has approached challenges in the past and develop new approaches we can implement going forward.
