4th Annual Medical & Bioscience Education Day/SIMEC V

Our theme for this year is “Teaching Matters: Belonging, Community, Diversity.” This event features skills-based workshops, plenaries on teaching and mentoring, and presentations of educational scholarship from the Stanford Medicine community. We believe you will find it a great opportunity both to develop new ideas for and to be inspired in your teaching and mentoring practice.

Navigating racial bias — An evening with Professor Jennifer Eberhardt

The Stanford Undergraduate Neuroscience Society has the pleasure of welcoming Professor Jennifer Eberhardt to discuss her work in navigating racial bias within different spheres in addition to deriving future steps from this knowledge. Professor Eberhardt has been a pioneer in the field of social psychology. Her work anchors in criminal justice and extends to startling images of racial imagery and discrimination. In addition to being on Oprah (watch here), Dr. Eberhardt's TED Talk here has shown millions of people about racial bias and ways to disrupt it.
