Inclusive Environments and Metrics in Biology Education and Research (iEMBER) is seeking applied anthropologists interested in studying inequity, education, STEM, gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality, social reproduction, cultural models, social capital, identity, careers, and various other topics to join its interdisciplinary network of researchers and change makers.
iEMBER is hosting a workshop at the upcoming SFAA meeting on April 19, 2021 titled “Collaboration Workshop: Interdisciplinary Networking for Research in Undergraduate Biology/STEM Educational Equity.” The goal of the workshop is to create interdisciplinary teams of researchers addressing inclusion in biology education. iEMBER is NSF-funded and grants modest financial awards to support groups’ collaboration.
Please join us at the upcoming SFAA meeting at our workshop and/or join our organization by visiting us at http://www.iember.org/. We welcome all fields and career levels. You can also email Rebecca Campbell-Montalvo (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jana Marcette (email@example.com) for more information. Follow us on Twitter @iEMBER_Network.
