HerSTORY Seminar Series
Please join us and celebrate Women’s History Month through the BMCDB DEIC herSTORY seminar series.
herSTORY came about as a vision and means for us—a collective of female PhD students—to fulfill our desires to create an opportunity where we could hear about the often unheard but important and inspiring stories of women in STEM. These are stories that incorporate the struggles, the achievements, and everything in between in the journey of a female scientist; stories that hold the emotions to connect and inspire the future generations to believe in themselves and their abilities to achieve their dreams despite the challenges.
We have four amazing seminar speakers from UC Davis who we would like to celebrate! Please RSVP to attend their talks: https://forms.gle/ZKDPuxGWNv5yUqGH6

We want to introduce you to our new Antiracist Research Network (ARN) doctoral student organization, which seeks to support historically underserved graduate students. We are reaching out to invite doctoral students to join and become a member of our organization. Attached you can find our one-pager summarizing our organization's vision, mission, and objectives. Essentially, we are interested in creating a community of support where we share the knowledge/information we've acquired navigating through our doctoral journeys to support other historically underserved doctoral students in their journey. Our purpose is to create a system of support where we can collaborate to gather the experiences we need to strongly compete in the labor market. Our hope is that the ARN activities, programming, and events support students’ professional development and progress towards your doctoral degree.
If you are interested in being a member, please review the membership commitments and fill out the following member intake form here. Once we receive your membership intake, we will follow up with more information and details. ARN meetings will be carried out through Zoom beginning Fall Quarter 2021.
The Antiracists Research Network looks forward to reviewing your member intake and being in community with you! Please do not hesitate to email us with any of your questions (email@example.com). Again, we hope you’ll consider joining our community, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
Interested in an opportunity to contribute to research that is being conducted to learn more about the experiences on campus of LGBTQIA+ grad students, professional students and staff?
