The goal of this year’s Symposium is to bring together scientists from many different backgrounds and experiences to take part in a conversation about allyship in STEM. The event will feature a Keynote Address from Kelly LeMarie, M.S. entitled “Say Something: Allied Behavior Training”, where she will discuss research on the benefit of allies, and a De-Escalation Training Workshop that will provide participants with tangible ways to deal with situations of explicit and implicit bias. Register here for the Keynote and/or Workshop.
Each year we also like to use our Symposium as a time to highlight the exciting and interesting science that is being conducted at Duke with a poster session. We encourage scientists from all fields to apply to present. Register here to present a poster.
