DEI Journal Club

We will be meeting in Chem 204 from 2-3pm to discuss the following papers:

(1) “Color-blind or racially conscious? How college science faculty make sense of racial/ethnic underrepresentation in STEM” by Tatiane Russo-Tait

(2) “Evading Race: STEM Faculty Struggle to Acknowledge Racialized Classroom Events” by Gretchen P. King, Tatiane Russo-Tait, and Tessa C. Andrews

Please join us for an open and honest discussion about the findings and underlying themes of this research! Students, postdocs, faculty, and staff are all welcome. There are still open slots for volunteers to present in the following months as well! Check out the link below for more details.

More info on the journal club:  Following a successful first meeting in May, 2023, we have extended the DEI journal club to a monthly meeting held on the last Wednesday of each month from 2-3pm! This monthly journal club aims to discuss peer-reviewed papers about DEI in STEM across a wide range of topics (e.g. STEM disparities across race, gender, disability, faith, sexuality, etc.). All students, postdocs, staff, and faculty are invited and welcome. Please join us for any or all sessions to learn more about issues that are new to you, and to add your voice on issues you have experience with. We invite anyone to bring your own topic and perspective. This is a volunteer opportunity: You can sign up to lead the conversation in future meetings! Just like for any other paper presentation, no prior expertise is needed. You can learn as you go and help others do the same. To see the schedule, list of ideas for topics, and sign up sheet, click the link below -- just a few slots remain in 2023!

If you have any questions, please contact Jon Zatorski (jmz3gm) and Sophie Cook (src3qd), the current organizers of this series.
