Race and Racism in the Sciences Speaker Series
Thursdays from 4:00 - 5:30 with an optional 30-minute debriefing following
In collaboration with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts across NYU Sciences, we are pleased to announce the 2022 Race and Racism in the Sciences Speaker Series. All members of the NYU scientific community, regardless of department, are invited to attend. The series originated after extensive interdepartmental discussions in the Fall of 2020, among faculty, postdocs, and students. This second annual event brings experts across disciplines to discuss issues of racism within the history of our disciplines and consider means by which we can create a more inclusive science.
