Many of us are aware of a lack of diversity in science.  And issues go beyond representation, with persistent barriers to inclusion. What can
we do to effect change? How can we confront persistent biases in science? What does it mean to challenge and disrupt the status quo? How
can we support an inclusive culture and foster inclusive excellence? Join us for lively conversations and new ideas as we gather to celebrate
the growing momentum to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion in science.
