Sponsored by the Carl R Woese Institute for Genomic Biology Committee on Diversity (IGB-COD), this roundtable will be an opportunity for the IGB community (and larger campus community) to exchange ideas on how to create a more inclusive, diverse and welcoming culture in STEM fields. The IGB-COD will provide an update on past and planned activities and events. IGB-COD members would then like to hear ideas about current and proposed practices to create a more welcoming environment in our community.
