You can make a difference: Incorporating inclusive practices into Astronomy and your day-to-day work life

Physics/Astro Auditorium

Kelle Cruz (Hunter College)

March 14 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

It is widely recognized that not all groups of people succeed in equal numbers in academia despite our best intentions to make the profession a fair and objective meritocracy. I will give a brief review of the historical context of oppression in the US and some statistics which demonstrates the current situation in science and astronomy. I will spend the majority of the talk discussing ways in which individuals at all seniority levels can take actions to increase the inclusion of marginalized groups in our profession.
