I’d like to invite you to join the next Union of Concerned Scientists webinar on decolonizing science. We firmlybelieve science should be a means—and not an obstacle—to reducing inequity and ensuring that science-based policy decisions benefit all. Science is a human endeavor that takes place within a historical, social, and political context, and as such can reflect the biases and power structures prevalent in society. We’re excited to bring this important conversation to our community, and to start having more of these honest discussions about the intersections of science, equity, and justice.
The Science Network at the Union of Concerned Scientists invites you to a webinar conversation led by Indigenous and Black scholars around what it means to "decolonize science." Using the controversy over the Thirty Meter Telescope and the sacred mountain of Mauna Kea as a case study, speakers will share examples of the role of colonialism in science.
