Unlearning Racism in Geosciences

Monday, October 4, 2021 - 12:20pm
Location: 
Morrill 129 and Zoom

 

URGE (Unlearning Racism in GEoscience) is an NSF-funded program with participating ‘pods’ across the country. They are excited to engage our whole department in the work that they have started. URGE describes its mission:
 
(1) deepen the community’s knowledge of the effects of racism on the participation and retention of Black, Brown, and Indigenous people in Geoscience, (2) draw on existing literature, expert opinions, and personal experiences to develop anti-racist policies and strategies, and (3) share, discuss, and modify anti-racist policies and strategies within a dynamic community network and on a national stage.
 
Folks in the URGE pod will lead a discussion and break out workshop around various topics that the group worked on last year. You can see the deliverables at this link. Link to see the work of the URGE pod last Spring.
 
Capacity is limited to 18 people in Morrill 129, first come first serve. Masks required. All seminars also available via Zoom. Contact the speaker to get the Zoom link.
