Considering racial microaggressions in science
- Event Location Online
Join the Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research (SABER) for an interactive session to explore ways in which racial microaggressions manifest themselves in science. We will discuss what microaggressions are and how they effect underrepresented individuals in an academic setting. We will present several examples of microaggressions and discuss general strategies for confronting them. Participants will brainstorm ideas for ways in which they would approach different microaggression scenarios followed by group discussion Featuring Colin Harrison, PhD (Georgia Tech) and Kimberly Tanner, PhD (San Francisco State University).
