The 2021 #URSTEMrecharge will be held on Thursday, June 17, 2021 as a series of virtual sessions hosted via Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in any and all sessions as a launching point for continued discussion and action within and across individual departments.
#URSTEMrecharge emerges after the 2020 call from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for academic scientific communities to #shutdownSTEM on June 10, 2020. Building on the spirit of this important national movement, Arts Sciences and Engineering (AS&E) at the University of Rochester is planning a day of self-examination and self-reflection. Taking a collective pause from “business as usual”, this event focuses on diversity and improving inclusive research practices in STEM at the University of Rochester.
*Note: Participation is not limited to the STEM-community; UR social scientists, humanists, faculty, students, and staff are all welcomed!
