This workshop is organized and sponsored by the ASPB Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee (EDIC) The Black Lives Matter movement, and its heightened urgency in the wake of summer 2020 murders, has prompted many conversations in academia and industry on our collective role supporting BIPOC careers in science. The Women in Plant Biology Committee (WiPB) and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee (EDIC) hope to help convert these conversations into action. To this end, the joint committees propose an ASPB 2021 panel to highlight previous and ongoing success stories, i.e. initiatives at various career stages that have provided tangible support for BIPOC careers in plant biology. Potential initiatives to highlight include undergraduate peer mentorship, graduate recruitment, graduate and postdoc level networking, faculty cluster hiring/retention, and burden-sharing at all levels. We propose to bring leaders and decision makers together to provide a first-hand account of challenges, goals, strategies, and "on the ground" activities that led to success. We hope to focus especially on activities that have expanded participation in plant biology and STEM fields at all career stages. Panelists will be encouraged to discuss how these initiatives can scale or port into other settings -- for example, other teams, departments, and universities. We will host 5 panelists for a 90-minute panel and Q&A. We hope participants will take back to their workplaces constructive action items with clear steps toward implementation. A short report co-authored by panelists and organizers will be published on the Plantae website and ASPB newsletter to ensure dissemination to a larger audience.
