Unpacking Diversity Keynote: "Transforming STEM: Changing the culture and widening the pathways" by Dr. Aradhna Tripati
Recruiting people into institutions where they are isolated, or encounter leaders and peers who are unequipped to be agents of change, has negative effects on both recruitment and retention, and fosters an unwelcoming climate to diversity and inclusion. In this presentation, Dr. Aradhna Tripati (UCLA) will show how she built communities of learning and practice to advance a culture of inclusion at the nation’s first university center for diversity in environmental science. By sharing key findings from pilot and demographic work, she will answer the questions: How can data and interventions transform science? How can we achieve systemic change and prioritize the retention of diverse scholars, improve institutional climates, and support faculty and early career development?

This event is open to the public.
