Equity, diversity, inclusion and decolonization

 

Starting in October 2020, the lab formed a discussion group that meets regularly to talk about equity, diversity, inclusion and decolonization. Our group is committed to making the lab inclusive to diverse perspectives and experiences, to continue our learning about decolonization, and to implement decolonial practices in our science. Here are some resources we have engaged with to guide us. We encourage anyone interested in working with the group to have a look through:
