In this workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to virtually reflect on your research as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
You’ll explore the definitions of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the context of Gladstone and scientific research, and dive into a case study to understand how DEI contributes to better scientific research. The workshop will close out with a process of self-reflection that can bring a DEI lens to the roles of researcher, collaborator, reviewer, and mentor and mentee.
You’ll leave the course with frameworks that can help you address access, belonging, and justice both in your labs and in the subjects of your research.
