In honor of Diversity Month, we are pleased to host the first annual CHOP Diversity Symposium. This is a time for us to come together and reflect on the importance of diversity, and to highlight opportunities to make science more diverse, equitable, and accessible to all. This year’s theme is “Striving for Equity in STEM” and our inaugural speaker is Manu Platt, PhD. Integrated with his research program are his mentoring goals of changing the look of the next generation of scientists and engineers to include all colors, genders, and backgrounds. Dr. Platt will address systemic barriers impeding underrepresented minorities in STEM, and discuss methods to counteract the overt and implicit barriers contributing to this phenomenon.
