Roundtable to discuss issues of race and gender bias in STEM fields – June 2

The Black Graduate and Professional Student Association is proud to present our 2nd Women in Science and Engineering Leadership Initiative (WISELI) sponsored Roundtable

Tunneling through the Barriers of Institutional Race and Gender Bias: Strategies for Black Women in STEM and their Allies

featuring Dr. Evelynn Hammonds, the Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science, and Professor of African and African American Studies at Harvard University.

The roundtable will be held June 2, 2016 from 2pm to 4pm in the Wisconsin Idea Room in the Education Building followed by a reception.

The roundtable with Dr. Hammonds will include discussions around the issues of race and gender both women and men face in STEM fields including ways to overcome biases. Each roundtable discussion will be facilitated by faculty. And there will be an opportunity to converse with Dr. Hammonds during the reception.
As the topic Dr. Hammonds is addressing is aligned with the mission of our university, we would like you to partner with the BGPSA to broadcast Dr. Hammonds’ roundtable discussion, open to all students, faculty, and staff. Please use this BGPSA_WISELI_Hammonds_flyer to spread the word about the event.
