The Diversity & Inclusion Committee is committed to (1) enriching the experience of UW-Madison’s postdocs from all underrepresented groups and to (2) empowering every postdoc to advocate for and support underrepresented groups in academia. These include, but are not limited to, postdocs who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOCs); members of the LGBTQIA+ Community; Womxn; and postdocs with disabilities. Towards that end, the Committee hosts a monthly Learning Group to further our collective understanding of racism and discrimination in academia, foster inclusion and anti-racism in our communities, and realize ways to support underrepresented groups. See the list below to explore upcoming and previous discussion topics and resources.
To join the Learning Group email list or volunteer to lead a discussion, please contact the UWPA (firstname.lastname@example.org).
