Book Club: Uncharted: How Scientists Navigate Their Own Health, Research, and Experiences of Bias (Session 2 of 3)

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm



DO-IT staff is facilitating a book club this summer on Uncharted: How Scientists Navigate Their Own Health, Research, and Experiences of Bias edited by Skylar Bayer and Gabi Serrato Marks. "Uncharted" is a powerful collection of first-person stories from scientists with disabilities or chronic conditions, highlighting their unique challenges and successes in STEM fields, and advocating for greater inclusivity and accessibility in academia.  The book club aims to create conversation amongst the computing community about disability inclusion.

Each week participants will read or skim a portion of the book and we will meet as a group over Zoom to discuss what was learned or ask questions to the group.

Upon successful registration, we will send you a copy of a physical or electronic book. If you choose a physical book, make sure you put the address you'd like the book to be mailed on the registration form.
