Next, ask panelists about barriers they’ve faced, beneficial changes to
the academic environment, and how they leveraged their own cultural
competencies to facilitate inclusion.
Finally, you’ll break into groups to participate in exercises to break

biases and strategies to improve awareness and cultural competency.

The Public Affairs Committee will organize the third annual 3 MT competition at the 2019 meeting. The following description is taken from the creator’s website: “Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) celebrates the exciting research conducted by PhD students around the world. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), the competition cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. Competitors are allowed one PowerPoint slide, but no other resources or props”. We encourage all graduate students to consider participating in this event, particularly if they have fewer outreach opportunities at their home institution. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. To register please complete the application in the link below.
