WOMEN IN SCIENCE AND EDUCATION LUNCHEON

Gender Diversity in the Lab
12:00 noon-1:30 p.m.
Friday, October 4
RSVP by Wednesday, September 25

How can scientists of all genders promote gender diversity at SPR? How is the goal of gender diversity conceptualized, discussed, and implemented in psychophysiology labs? Does diversity in the lab environment play a role in the research questions we ask and the methodologies we use?

Please join WISE for a discussion of gender diversity in the lab. Facilitated by panel of senior, mid-level, and early career scientists, whose research is not necessarily gender-specific, this discussion is inclusive and open to all. Please direct questions about the event to Kimmy Fleming by email at kafmrb@mail.mizzou.edu or Reese Minshew by email at reese.minshew@gmail.com.

To RSVP for the luncheon please contact the SPR National Office at spr@reesgroupinc.com.
