In September 2020, NOBBChE @ Emory and PACS are collaborating on a once-a-week discussion (via Zoom) featuring scholarly articles focused on systemic racism and its impact on the Emory and STEM community and graduate student development. The discussion occur each Friday during the month of September at 12:30pm. Participants will discuss the article topics, share their perspectives, and consider the impacts of the information in each reading on society and the future of STEM.
This is a great opportunity to learn the perspectives of your fellow peers!Zakiria Mays, NOBCChE Communication Chair
