METX has always made an effort to include a diverse set of speakers for our seminar series. In addition to outstanding research, these speakers help illustrate a wide variety in the backgrounds of successful scientists. Expanding on this, METX has committed to a series of seminars (occurring at least once per quarter) with speakers that do research on diversity, equity, inclusion and social disparities. The objective is to openly discuss the existing systemic diversity gaps, learn about the type of research that is being done in that regard, and discuss how we, individually and collectively, can contribute to creating a better environment with equal opportunities for everybody.


In consultation with our students and campus, METX will be offering a number of workshops for students, faculty, and the entire METX department focused on increasing our understanding and commitment to diversity and inclusion. As these occur, notification will be sent to the relevant parties.
