The Town Hall is an opportunity for Science leadership to listen to concerns from our Science community on racism and discrimination of all forms, from overt acts to those more unconscious in nature. The goal is for us to gain a better understanding of the problems facing Black, Indigenous and People of Colour. We hope to provide our Science Anti-Racism Taskforce with sufficient directions to formulate mitigation strategies so we may work together to become an inclusive academic society without racism.
