2020 Annual Meeting: The Evolution of STEM Research Culture
Tuesday, October 27, 2020, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT
The New York Academy of Sciences
2020 has been a year marked by incredible challenges and paradigm shifts. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, global collaboration has surged as scientists and health experts work collectively to address the pandemic. Schools and research institutions have had to alter their operations, changing how and where STEM researchers, students, and educators conduct their work. Amid the backdrop of pandemic, worldwide protests calling for an end to systemic racism highlight the urgent need for dismantling injustice and inequity within spaces of science. For most people around the world, 2020 has been a year of monumental disruption and transformation.
In a time when it can feel as if the only constant is change itself, we invite our Members to join us at the 202nd Annual Meeting of the New York Academy of Sciences, featuring a panel discussion moderated by the Academy's new President and CEO Nicholas Dirks exploring the changing nature of conducting science in today’s world. As institutions and individuals continue to adjust to the changing times, we'll examine how scientific “research culture” is evolving and how we might take what we’re learning to build a stronger field in the future.
