Basic Science Lights the Way: Expanding Access and Acceptance in Science

Tuesday, March 30, 2021 - 5:00pm

UC Berkeley has a renowned history in the sciences of cutting-edge, curiosity-driven research that results in paradigm-shifting discovery — fundamentally changing our understanding of nature, the universe, and ourselves. This tradition continues on campus as strong as ever. If you share our curiosity, the College of Letters & Science’s Division of Biological Sciences and Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences invite you to the Spring 2021 series of enlightening virtual discussions, featuring several of our brilliant faculty and students.

Expanding Access and Acceptance in Science

Implicit bias and institutionalized racism hinder diverse perspectives from pursuing or participating in the sciences. Two esteemed biologists and an emerging quantum physicist consider the changes required to redress this problem and create equitable academic communities.

This talk features Diana Bautista, Charles D. Brown, and Tyrone B. Hayes, moderated by Colette Patt, Assistant Dean, Division of Mathematical and Physical Sciences.
