Workshop on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Held on March 26, 2021
Workshop Mission and Vision Statement
The goal of our workshop is to collaborate towards building a welcoming and inclusive environment within the Society for Mathematical Biology (SMB) and scientific community more broadly.
We recognize that structural barriers have and continue to limit voices within our field based on race, gender identity or expression, disability status, sexual orientation, and immigration status among others. These barriers marginalize individuals at all educational and career stages.
We invite our community to join us as we engage in a critical reflection of our practices in order to cultivate a culture in which all voices are heard, valued and validated. Together, by sharing stories and identifying concrete actions, we can make space for everyone.
