Upcoming Webinars from AWIS on Creating Inclusive Workplaces
Kevin Marvel, American Astronomical Society (AAS)
The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) invites AAS members to join webinars in the series "Start With Me: How to Create Inclusive Pockets of Greatness."
Have you ever felt like you are standing in an echo chamber? Research is clear that diverse teams increase productivity and get results — but changing cultures and mindsets is hard. It takes understanding, awareness, and effort to become a true ally for creating inclusive environments. This AWIS leadership series will give you an introspective look at intersectional identities in the workplace and provide you the tools and resources you need to be an advocate and ally.
- Understand workplace experiences and policies from diverse perspectives.
- Overcome personal biases and blind spots to become a strong ally and advocate for diversity and inclusion.
- Apply research-based knowledge to practical steps needed to effect cultural change.
This series will culminate in the launch of a new AWIS signature report on broadening participation in STEM that will empower you with the research-based knowledge to put personally developed skills into action.
