Session 4: Imagining radical STEM futures.

In this last workshop session, we will reflect on the material we have learned over the previous sessions and leverage it to build an inclusive research team that gets the best out of everybody. These sessions have helped us develop some of the interpersonal skills needed to handle problematic encounters, carve out spaces for ourselves, and build more just systems on a small scale. But what about the broader incentive structures of science, the condoned behaviors, the unwritten rules? We will turn our attention upward and outward to continue to make our small actions even more meaningful, towards, in the words of Dr. Ruha Benjamin, a more viral justice.

During this session, you will learn to:

  • Reflect on the skills you have learned so far, and practice them.
  • Use imagination and intuition as key ways of knowing, and as ways to dream up better ways to do science.
  • Decide on additional ways you as a group will seek solidarity from each other.
