This interactive workshop will present essential elements ofpromoting diversity and inclusion for graduate students and postdocs in theSTEM disciplines. We will address different modes to promoting diversity and inclusion, and discuss why some common modes are actually ineffective. You will also have opportunities to reflect on your own social identities and privileges, and to discuss them with your peers. This session will extend beyond the introductory Diversity 101 session from the fall orientation, but prior attendance at the Diversity 101 session is not required. Practical activities in which you can participate will also be shared.
Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP so that we can plan for the food,and plan for the group discussions.
Steve Lee is the Graduate Diversity Officer forthe STEM Disciplines at UC Davis.
