Navigating Research, Race, Gender & Difference” will discuss how race, gender, and difference matters in research, working with professors/mentors, and in the dissemination of one’s research. Students will discuss a range of concepts regarding standpoints, racism, and oppression, and how such terms manifest when conducting research, collaborating with mentors, and in the dissemination of research. This workshop seeks to provide a platform for students to openly talk about conducting research while navigating difference.

STUDENT FEEDBACK FROM THIS SESSION:
“Provides an excellent set of groundwork to understanding positionality’s impact on epistemology in a research setting.”
“It helps open your eyes to phenomena you might not experience. It helps you think more critically when performing research to give every group to respect they deserve.”
“She didn’t suggest we could immediately fix the problem of racial and gender bias today, but acknowledged specific actions we can take to recognize racial and gender bias in our research and address it.”
