Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Session: Call for Abstracts

Announcing a special call for abstracts for a diversity, equity, and inclusion-focused session:

Practicing innovative inclusion: tools to advance research excellence
Co-chair: Jennifer Alexander, Fox Chase Cancer Center
Co-chair: Andrew Arsham, Bemidji State University

The goal of this session is to share concrete ideas and strategies to strengthen the genetics research community with transformative inclusive practices across all career levels.

We welcome abstracts from trainees, educators, researchers, policymakers, and funders who wish to share their inclusive practices in conversation and community with others doing and aspiring to do the same. We also welcome submissions that include cross-cutting work extending beyond Drosophila genetics-focused research.

For this session ONLY, abstract submission fees will be waived, and conference registration is not required to present. If you are interested in submitting an abstract for this exciting session or if you have questions, please email equityinclusion@genetics-gsa.org.

Abstracts are due February 9, 2021.
