The UW Center for Evaluation and Research for STEM Equity (CERSE) conducted a climate survey and focus groups in the Statistics Department over the past calendar year that involved students, faculty, and staff. In this seminar, several of CERSE's Research Scientists will share the results of the climate study. The results fall under the following themes: Inclusion; Community; Communication; Career & Advising Support. CERSE will conclude with some recommendations moving forward to foster an increasingly equitable departmental climate. 

CERSE's presentation is intended to be informative and engaging. Throughout the seminar there will opportunities for participants to share their collective thoughts and feelings in real time through Poll Everywhere software and via discussions. Please join in, participate, and learn about how to advance a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the department.
