What factors lead to disparities\nin representation? Why should we be motivated to effect c hange? What\ncan we do to change things? Will our actions really make a\n difference? \n\nThis presentation will focus on ideas to challenge the st atus quo –\nactions to advance equity\, diversity\, and inclusion (EDI). We will\ndiscuss recent research to illustrate and raise awareness of\n the many EDI challenges in science\, then explore various practical\nwa ys to take action to advance EDI. These practical actions stem\nfrom our recently released \"Science is For Everyone\"\nTeaching toolkit\, which provides an abundance of ideas to\ndiversify science education and fur ther support recruitment\,\nretention\, and advancement of all students. We will touch on the\nimportance of diversifying content and talk about how Indigenous\ncontent is being brought into post-secondary science co urses.\nFinally\, we will give an overview of other exciting science EDI\ ninitiatives across research and academic life.\n\n \n DTSTAMP:20220930T041636Z END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
