In light of the increased visibility of the killing of unarmed Black people by police, there is a movement happening in America to address racial inequities across multiple facets of life, and neither the Academy nor STEM researchers are immune.

Overlaying the disproportionate effect of COVID-19 on Black and Brown people has led to a tipping point driving activism nationwide. However, there is a risk that once the outrage passes, structures supporting systemic racism will remain, once again, gaslighting academics and students of color who thought that change was coming.

Professor Platt will uncover micro- to mega- activities that occur on a daily basis to sustain racial inequities, the toll it takes on recipients, and then suggest changes to be made from the personal to institutional level to promote anti-racist practices to transform the academic culture.
