'Can we talk?' Difficult Conversations with Underrepresented People of Color

Join us for a screening of the film series "Can we talk?" by Dr. Kendall Moore, which focuses on the issue of 'social belonging' in the context of STEM and the effect it has on the lives of underrepresented people of color. In a follow-up discussion, we will talk about the barriers that those from minority backgrounds still encounter when entering the Planetary Science community, and explore ways in which institutions and individual researchers can change this reality. These difficult conversations must be conducted now in order to make our field as welcoming and diverse as it can be.

Conveners: Lena Noack, Victoria K Pearson, Joao Faria
Tue, 21 Sep, 18:00–20:00 (CEST)
