CRBLM Workshop: Practical strategies for reducing bias and discrimination in STEM
Science is a global endeavour that impacts the lives of diverse people so it is important that diverse people fully participate in the scientific process. We know that diverse teams do better science but there remains an overwhelming amount of evidence demonstrating that people from marginalized groups continue to face substantial bias and discrimination in STEM. These issues are not perpetuated by a single demographic, but actually originate from all of us and unfortunately, our unconscious behaviour can be in direct contradiction to the beliefs we hold. Fortunately, there are many strategies to fix the issues of bias and discrimination in STEM. In this talk, we will discuss the literature that demonstrates the causes and potential solutions to the issues of bias and discrimination in STEM.
This workshop will be led by Dr Lisa Willis (University of Alberta).
