ENAR - Incorporating Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Biostatics Courses

When:  Apr 23, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET)
As we embrace conversations about improving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the field of biostatistics, ideally, these perspectives should appear in every aspect of the profession, including incorporating these principles into how we teach our trainees. By incorporating DEI into biostatistics pedagogy, instructors and trainees can cultivate a more holistic understanding of both historical background and current challenges in the field by enabling all students to see themselves in the content and how they might contribute to making important contributions to both statistical theory and application.
We will begin this WebENAR by putting this into historical context to establish the importance of incorporating DEI into biostatistics training and coursework. We will then introduce practical examples from our own experiences of how to introduce these concepts into courses without compromising course objectives and without requiring additional time for these modifications. The session will conclude with open discussion where we encourage all those attending the WebENAR to share their own experiences and ideas for making biostatistics courses more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
