Affirmation and Empowerment Workshop 2: Power and Privilege at Play in Academia and the Art of Creating an Inclusive Environment. Hosted by ImprovScience.

We will address how negative stereotypes, low expectations and systemic bias feed into the under-performance of Underrepresented Minority (URM) students in a non-competitive, safe and inclusive space. iMCB will proudly serve as the first initiative of its kind within our department to create a space to critically discuss these issues and provide concrete exercises to help students overcome feelings of uncertainty, isolation, and fear.
