Collaboration Retreat keynote to focus on increasing diversity in STEM graduate students and workforce

October 13, 2020

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.
