Changing the Culture of Chemistry: Race and Diversity in the Lab

An organization’s culture defines how it approaches problems in the workplace. Whether you’re the head of your own lab or a graduate student, workplace culture is something everyone can influence every time they go to work. That’s why ACS Publications is leading a series of free webinars on the ways chemists can improve their lab’s culture and make their workplace increasingly diverse, safe, and sustainable.

The first free webinar in our Changing the Culture of Chemistry series is dedicated to discussing Race and Diversity in the Lab.

Attendees will hear from prominent chemists who are outspoken advocates for increased racial diversity, inclusion, and respect in the lab. Speakers will discuss their own experiences and the ways all chemists can work to improve their lab’s culture. This free one-hour program will end with a moderated discussion and an opportunity to ask questions of the panel.

What you’ll hear about:

  • Understanding the scope of racial challenges in the lab
  • Creating an inclusive environment of excellence through recruitment, retention, and career advancement
  • Working to ensure colleagues feel safe and respected

Who you’ll hear from:

Edgar A. Arriaga, Ph.D.
University of Minnesota

Ann C. Kimble-Hill, Ph.D.
Indiana University School of Medicine

Steven D. Townsend, Ph.D.
Vanderbilt University
