Facing the History of Science, Politics, and Oppression: Reflections and accountability in service of an equitable future - Krystal Tsosie

Jul 7, 2018



Science is not always a force for good. As a human endeavor, it's susceptible to the same biases as the society that supports it. This panel -- featuring experts on environmental justice, global health equity, and indigenous rights -- will unpack the complexities and inequities riddled throughout the history of science in society and science as an institution. We will reflect on where we've gone wrong, at whose expense, and the ways that we must do better.
