Inclusion, diversity, and equity working group

Who

  • DAWN and DARK members
  • People at any career stages are welcome

Scope

  • Share resources and promote conversations that help us to take initial steps to become educated and effective allies to our underrepresented minority colleagues.
  • Discussions that help us to become aware of the long history of inequity and discrimination against groups marginalized because of their sex, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, disability status, and more, that persists in our communities.
  • Participation in this meeting is a small way to inform ourselves about our biases and the shortcomings of our academic culture and to identify actions we may take to make positive change.

When and how

Hybrid format:

  • Paper discussion: one Wednesday per month at 14:00 for 60 minutes.
  • Seminar: last Thursday of the month, at 14.00.
