CRS ED&I Town Halls
The following resources are intended to increase awareness of challenges to equity, diversity, and inclusion, particularly within science and technology. CRS encourages its members to use these educational materials and others you encounter in your personal and professional activities and networks to proactively enrich and engage your efforts in preventing prejudice of all kinds. Through better understanding of the systemic and institutional barriers faced by many of our colleagues, trainees, and fellow CRS members, we can all work together for the betterment of the greater scientific community and society.
