Join the MRS Women in Materials Science and Engineering working group for this interactive panel discussion as we explore real-life examples of bias and injustice against individuals from a diverse set of underrepresented groups. Likewise, we will share stories about empowering experiences of support that gave a voice to injustices. Through these examples, our panelists will help the audience reimagine how the negative situations could have unfolded in a more positive way and provide strategies that each of us can implement to create more accepting and inclusive environments.
Our panelists share their paths to their current careers, highlighting the ups and downs they have experienced, both pertaining to their membership in underrepresented groups as well as generally in the STEM fields. The event will also feature a moderated Q&A from audience members.
