For IBPOC Women and IBPOC non-binary people
STEM IBPOC Network for Women and Non-Binary People
STEM fields have few faculty and staff who are IBPOC women or IBPOC gender-diverse people. As a result, those belonging to these groups have limited options for empathic mentoring and support. In recognition of this, and in alignment with UBC’s commitment to build an inclusive environment, IBPOC women and IBPOC gender-diverse faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars and graduate students are invited to attend the IBPOC STEM Network’s socials.
This initiative is funded by the Equity and Inclusion Office’s IBPOC Coffee Club Fund and different departments with the Faculty of Science (eg. Computer Science, Microbiology, Zoology and Botany, Physics).
