Disability & -Isms: Racism, Sexism, and Ageism

Presentation Video | Presentation Slides
 

Disability & -Isms: Racism, Sexism, and Ageism - If an organization is overrun by “-isms,” everyone loses. This lively panel discussion will shed insight of the impact of racism, sexism, ageism, and ableism. When -isms are present in an organization, people do not work to their full advantage, teams are not as strong, communication is weaker, and consultation about important tasks that require collaboration and multiple perspectives may not happen. Attendees will gain an awareness of these -isms and understand how to combat these very common forms of bias.

This is the fifth of six webinars focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Research Administration and Data: What the data says about us and how we can leverage this information to be the change we seek

Presentation Video | Presentation Slides
 

Research Administration and Data: What the data says about us and how we can leverage this information to be the change we seek. In today’s climate, you’d be hard pressed to find an organization that does not talk about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) as a priority, a goal, a value, a differentiator, a part of organizational culture, and, at the same time, a focused area for improvement. This panel will examine the outputs of the latest NCURA climate survey as well as the trajectories and impact of a series of surveys of the research administration community. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the general make-up of both NCURA and the research administration community as a whole, comparisons to the US workforce overall, and the impact of an aging and heavily white and female community on the industry.

This is the fourth of six webinars focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
