PNW Race, Racism, Anti-Racism Series: From Barriers and Biases to Belonging: Lessons from a Female Physicist
March 22, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
Neeti Parashar, Ph.D., Professor of Physics at PNW and Institution Leader at Fermilab and CERN.
The identity of the scientist implies a sense of belonging, and yet is often undermined by a lack of racial equity. This assertion is borne out by the data which reveals that the percentage of degrees earned by scientists of color dangles perilously in the single digits (AIP, 2019).
This presentation will address certain barriers through the lens of a female physicist – born and raised in a “third world” country, and eventually settled in the world’s most scientifically advanced country. Parashar will present ways to mitigate the systemic behaviors that result in marginalization of certain groups.
