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.
