 The Monday Plant Biology Seminar Series features a talk by Tati Russo-Tait, assistant professor in the UGA department of cellular biology.
Russo-Tait leads the ACCESS lab. The ACCESS lab aims to re-frame "access" in college STEM education by engaging in research that focuses on Advancing Critical Consciousness, Equity, and Social Justice in STEM.
This seminar will explore how “color-blind” ideology can inform STEM faculty’s understandings about racial disparities in STEM in ways that constrain their ability to support racially minoritized students and recognize their responsibility for ameliorating racial injustice in their spheres of influence. Critical racial consciousness development is key for faculty to individually and collectively advance racial justice in STEM higher education.
