Geoscientists of Color and Call to Action teams will host the workshop to grow awareness of the anti-racism calls to action. It will occur during the Geological Society of America (GSA) virtual conference week. The workshop will revisit two widely shared calls for anti-racist action in the geosciences, No Time For Silence and A Robust Anti-racism Plan, published in Summer 2020. During this workshop, participants will hear from organizers of the calls, reflect on anti-racist actions they can take and advocate for, and consider ways to move forward as a community.

Breakout groups will allow participants at different career stages to discuss the specific opportunities and obstacles related to recruiting and retaining diverse cohorts.

Overview

A workshop facilitated by Stephanie Goodwin, Ph.D., President, Incluxion Works, in collaboration with the University of New Hampshire’s PowerPlay Interactive Development improvisational theater team.

Ever wondered “Why didn’t I say something?” after witnessing social bias—a stereotype, a prejudice or discrimination—that happened in your everyday life? You’re not alone. Deciding whether and how to respond to bias is complicated. Understanding what motivates us to speak up, the challenges we face when doing so, and strategies for effective responding can help bystanders to bias better evaluate their options and select effective strategies. This interactive presentation will invite attendees to learn about bystander reactions to social biases and how these reactions can help or hinder decisions to speak up. Attendees will apply these concepts to everyday incidents of bias in either academic or work settings with an emphasis on understanding the challenges in STEMM contexts. PowerPlay Interactive Development’s team of improvisational actors will portray brief, familiar moments of bias and challenging interpersonal behavior. Attendees will be invited to interact, replay and experiment in conversation with the characters to understand the complexity of responding to biases and learn how to navigate these situations more successfully.
