Amplified: Race and Reality in STEM
Manu Platt, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University
As visibility of the killing of unarmed black men by police has increased, a movement to address racial inequities in the United States has gained steam, and neither academia nor STEM researchers are immune. In addition, the disproportionate effect of COVID-19 on black and brown people has led to a tipping point driving activism nationwide. However, the risk remains that the moment will pass and that structures supporting systemic racism will remain, once again, gaslighting academics and students of color into thinking that change is coming.
After the overwhelmingly positive reception to Manu Platt’s first presentation at Gladstone, we’re bringing him back to deliver his message to a national audience.
During this discussion, you’ll learn how to:
- Uncover micro-to-mega activities that occur on a daily basis that sustain racial inequities
- Understand the toll it takes on recipients
- Learn about changes that you can make to promote anti-racist practices
- Transform the academic culture
This presentation is open to the public.
