TK 5
ESA Diversity Luncheon

Thursday, August 13, 2015: 11:30 AM-1:15 PM
Camden Lobby, Baltimore Convention Center
What does it take to advocate for diversity initiatives? At ESA’s Centennial, the Diversity luncheon offers a rich program to celebrate our accomplishments and steer us into the future. Reports show that for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields to reflect the diversity of our nation, we will need to triple the number of scientists from underrepresented groups. What can faculty do to paint a new picture for diversity? Be sure to reserve your seat for a lively conversation with Dr. David Asai, Senior Director of Undergraduate and Graduate Programs in Science Education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and formerly science educator and researcher at Harvey Mudd College. Dr. Asai will share ways to advocate for diversity initiatives effectively. Following the conversation, we will celebrate with the SEEDS Undergraduate Research Fellows who have completed their fellowship. There will also be a Diversity Careers and Graduate Programs Fair to learn about available graduate programs and internships. Come early for some networking. Enjoy a delicious lunch of mole painted chicken and romaine salad topped with oven-roasted tomatoes, black bean salsa, and a honey-lime vinaigrette dressing, served with rolls, a soft drink, and a fruit Napoleon or for vegetarians we will offer sesame stir-fried tofu served with salad, rolls, a soft drink, and a fruit Napoleon. Both meals are $26.
