Diversity and Inclusion Badge Program

In light of concerns for the health and safety of our community, all face-to-face DIBP workshops are postponed. Workshop 12010 Identity in STEM: Creating Inclusive Spaces in Scientific Research will be offered via WebEx at the scheduled time. All other workshops will be rescheduled for a later date. We will provide alternatives for participants who will graduate in May and are hoping to complete the badge this semester. More information on completion options will be provided in the coming weeks.

DIBP Deep-Dives WebEx Series: Remote Completion Option
DIBP Deep-Dives WebEx Series will provide a remote option for participants interested in completing the badge this semester. Participants will listen to a curated list of podcasts on diversity and inclusion topics on their own time and then participate in a live moderated discussion via WebEx. This flipped format will provide increased student engagement with the opportunity to discuss more advanced topics in smaller groups. Registration for each session will be limited to ten participants. This series will begin in May.
