Race and Bias Conversations

The Graduate School's 2021-2022 Race and Bias Conversations series continues with a discussion of anti-racist practices in graduate education, this time led by three current Duke PhD students. The event is open to all members of the Duke community, including alumni. In this event, you'll hear about best practices for academic departments, including how graduate students in Duke's Biology department developed a course called BIOLOGY 750S: Introduction to IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism) in Biology.

As graduate-level researchers, part of our job is to understand our field and its evolution through time. Ignoring the historical context that has shaped our field of study leads to an incomplete education. To address this gap, graduate students in Duke's Biology department developed a course called BIOLOGY 750S: Introduction to IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Anti-Racism) in Biology. Come learn about this unique coursework and what it's meant for graduate students in Biology. In this workshop, you'll also hear about best practices for academic departments interested in implementing similar coursework.

Note that graduate students will receive RCR credit (GS715.01) for attendance of the entire event; attendance is recorded via Zoom logs. For RCR credit, verify that you are logged in to your Duke Zoom account for the event (and not logged in with another account such as Gmail.) You will receive the Zoom link upon registration.
