The 2021 National Diversity in STEM (NDiSTEM) Digital Conference
will be held from October 25-29, 2021. This conference is organized by SACNAS, an inclusive organization dedicated to fostering the success of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans, from college students to professionals, in attaining advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in STEM. As educational training is high on AG2PI’s priority list, NDiSTEM represents an opportunity to meet students where they are, especially undergrads, and get them interested in this line of work, that is: interdisciplinary research teams consisting of scientists from plant and animal sciences, genetics, genomics, computational and data sciences, and engineering working together to better understand how genotype and environment influence phenotype for the complex traits of crops and livestock species.
The AG2PI is proposing a STEM Symposium titled Agricultural Genome To Phenome Initiative: Introduction and Community Building Session at NDiSTEM focused on cutting-edge science and research in all areas of AG2P to inform and inspire attendees. We are seeking nominations for session presenters! These are individuals who consider themselves as role models and mentors doing meaningful work at the intersection of AG2PI/STEM, equity, and inclusion. Each presenter will give a short virtual talk and participate in a virtual panel discussion on opportunities in AG2PI.
If you would like to nominate a presenter (yourself or a colleague), please fill out this form.
The deadline for nominations is June 3, 2021.
** Do you have a graduate fellowship to advertise? AG2PI would like to include a slide during this workshop on available fellowships or training programs (e.g., NRT, etc.).
