What are techniques and strategies STEM instructors can employ to have equitable and inclusive classrooms? This two-part workshop is intended for future faculty at all levels, disciplines, and roles in STEM, and aims to teach participants about biases in STEM, and provide concrete tips for addressing bias and creating welcoming class environments. Participants must attend both sessions.

  • Session 1 focuses on how unintentional/implicit bias influences STEM classes.
  • Session 2 focuses on steps instructors can take to address bias and create welcoming environments.

Participants will be expected to read short articles, watch short videos, and complete brief surveys outside of sessions.
