Content

This book will help readers:

  • Avoid common (and often well-intentioned) misconceptions about diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  • Get clarity on their own plan and mission toward diversity, equity, and inclusion.

About the Author

My work as an equity and inclusion practitioner began through my zeal for excellence in scientific research and a desire for greater representation in the classroom, the lab, the field, and in other academic spaces. I have worked alongside and led teams, departments, and individuals to develop and execute strategies that address the need for a more diverse and representative work environment. To do this, we engage in critical and meaningful conversations, consult the data, and do the work of shifting mindsets and behaviors.
