Environmental Justice Day Meeting

Are you interested in helping plan an environmental justice conference?  Then join our committee!  This committee will be comprised of staff members and community members.  In this committee we will be discussing what we would like to see in our Environmental Justice Conference.  The focus of this conference is to examine how the sciences are fields that are predominantly dominated by white, heterosexual men and how to integrate people of more diverse backgrounds into the scientific community and how to retain them there.

If you are interested in this meeting then stop by the meeting!  It is this Friday, October 24th, at 12:00 p.m. right here in the WRC!

 

Kink on Campus Meeting

Do you want to help plan one of the Women's Resource Center's most exciting and attended annual events?  Then stop by the Kink on Campus!  The meeting will last an hour and will explore the desired workshops and events that we all would like to see happen during the week of Kink on Campus.  If you are unfamiliar with Kink on Campus, it is a weeklong series of events and workshops that explores different kinks in sex, examines how to enjoy kinks safely, and serves to educate all on the myths and misconceptions they may have on kinks.

The next meeting will be Thursday, October 30th, at 4 p.m. in the WRC!

Environmental Justice Day

December 6th is the day!  The Environmental Justice Day will explore issues within the science community, particularly how the retention rate is lower among women and people of color, and will attempt to find solutions as to how to help remedy this problem.  Every community should be diverse and the sciences are no exception.  This Day comes in collaboration with the College of Natural Resource, W.R.A.A.P, C.C.A.T. and various other organizations.  It will also have a series of workshops from groups and students, a guest speaker, and a closing panel.

It starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. in the Kate Buchanan Room.  Lunch will be served!
