UVA Postdoctoral Association - Diversity and Outreach Committee

Dear Fellow UVA Postdocs,

The UVA Postdoc Association is creating a plan to actively support the Black Lives Matter movement and other marginalized or oppressed communities in the Greater Charlottesville Area (GCA). As scientists and educators, we feel there is a responsibility for us to re-educate ourselves on issues of racism and suppression, particularly in our community and areas of study. We also believe we have a valuable opportunity to serve our community by organizing scientific outreach and education activities. These will ideally be open to people from all walks of life, but in the current era there must also be an explicit focus to uplift marginalized communities. Therefore, the UVA Postdoc Association is forming a Diversity and Community Outreach Committee.

We are seeking fellow postdocs that want to join us and take a leadership role in shaping the direction and goals of this committee. This will include organizing activities and developing resources to enhance our presence in the GCA and empower other postdocs to be a positive force. For more information about our work please visit . Please let us know if you are interested in joining us contacting [email protected] We are organizing an orientation meeting for those interested.
