Join us in person to celebrate diversity and excellence in research as we bring together scholars from all career stages to discuss efforts to promote equity and inclusion within academia.
Professor Sherilynn Black (Duke University) is the Associate Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement at Duke, where she provides leadership for faculty advancement and leads initiatives to increase diversity among the faculty. Alongside this work, Dr. Black’s social neuroscience research reveals the effectiveness of interventions designed to promote diversity in academia. Through a combination of neuroscience and statistical modeling, Dr. Black develops effective strategies and interventions required to broaden participation in the basic and biomedical sciences.
In addition to Dr. Black’s keynote talk, studets are also welcome to participate in lunch and a small-group discussion with Dr. Black – please RSVP for lunch/small group discussion here.
This event is jointly hosted by SURPAS and BioAIMS.
