What do all the letters mean in LGBTQIA+? Why is BLM important? How does any of this apply to the Laboratory Sciences field? Here is a safe space to have those and any other questions answered, without judgement, from a diverse panel in our field.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss our differences and commonalities, to help bridge the divide between each other.
  • Demonstrate healthy conversations about diversity.
  • Review why its important for our organization to have these discussions.
