How to be a Better Ally in Research and Study


Building a Respectful Community: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace In this session, participants will learn what it takes to build a respectful and inclusive community by focusing on practices and policies that centre equity and diversity. Beginning with a discussion of the terms equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), the group will explore how EDI matters in the work and research spaces at UBC. This is followed by an examination of bias and microaggressions, how they manifest and what we can do about them. Led by Rachael Sullivan from the Equity and Inclusion office at UBC and taking place September [...]

BCREGMED Media Engagement Workshop


News media set agendas, shape policies and impact spending. Issues that are effectively profiled by the news media are seen as more important than those not receiving such attention. However, often the people most expert in a particular field have difficulty translating their deep knowledge into commentary that is accessible and engaging to a lay audience made up of those who don’t have a science background or specialized vocabulary. BCREGMED is providing a two day media engagement workshop for its graduate students, post docs, and PIs. The goal being to provide support with concrete tools and strategies to increase their [...]
