This panel will engage members from both underrepresented groups (women, minorities, disabled persons, etc.) and well-represented groups in explicit discussions about some of the challenges we face regarding diversity and underrepresentation. The goal is to have explicit discussions about the challenges and understand how we can continue to move toward harmonious solutions. Topics will include implicit and explicit biases, understanding and dealing with micro-aggressions, coping with isolation, etc. The panel will start with a set of brief presentations by each panelist followed by a moderated Q&A session during which the audience will get to engage and interact with the panelists. (This session is open to anyone registered for any part of the SC conference.)
