Tuesday 21st September (12.30-2pm)

An introduction to EDI Speaker: Alex Levine


Zoom Link:

More than ever, we are aware of the inequities that exist for underrepresented groups like women, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ2S+ community, and other equity entitled groups. It continues to be our collective responsibility to ensure that we allow equitable access for participation from these groups, and additionally, to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for everyone to thrive in our lab and research environment.

This session will include education on the basic concepts of EDI, principles and best practices of equity and inclusion, and how these can be applied in the lab and research environment. We will go through some examples of meaningful land acknowledgments, inclusive scientific practice and language, and how to create open and safe spaces for all.
