“Digging Deeper, Doing Better: Research Science and the Messiness of Engaging Cultural Diversity”
Scientists are cultural beings but are often reticent to acknowledge cultural diversity matters amongst themselves. Engaging with such matters is sometimes viewed as irrelevant to or detracting from “doing” science, and just plain messy. This webinar will review evidence documenting how race and privilege shape individuals and institutions, including career trajectories and the research training enterprise; review key terms useful in understanding experiences of scientists from historically underrepresented groups; and highlight emerging efforts within NRMN to support scientists “digging deeper and doing better” with engaging cultural diversity matters.
