"Beyond information: Walking the path of truth, reconciliation, and liberation to make academic biology more inclusive"

Desmond Tutu reminds us that our “humanity is caught up and is inextricably bound up in others." In this seminar, we will build on the previous seminars in this series to examine the work of social justice using the lens of our interconnectedness and interdependence. Together, we will consider why we must strive to move beyond ally-ship and statements of solidarity toward truth, reconciliation and liberation. Specifically, how can we take what we have learned in this seminar series and move towards action.

About the series:
A call to action: Striving toward inclusion in academic biology
An initiative sponsored by the Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research (SABER) focused on promoting awareness, understanding and committment to change academic biology environments to be more inclusive.
