Lincoln, Neb. —Dr. Ebony McGee of Vanderbilt Peabody College will give the keynote address at the University of Nebraska’s annual Collaboration Initiative Retreat on Oct. 30. The address, titled “Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation” will take place via Zoom at 10 a.m., followed by a smaller-group discussion opportunity from 11 a.m. until noon. Registration closes Oct. 16.
McGee’s remarks will focus on the issues and practices faculty can utilize that may result in a more diverse STEM graduate/research student body and workforce. All research-active faculty are invited to the Collaboration Initiative Retreat; however, non-research faculty, staff and others may also find McGee’s remarks insightful and helpful.
A special registration site has been set up for those primarily interested in McGee’s presentation.
Registration for the full Collaboration Retreat, which is geared toward research-active faculty, can be accessed here.
