Increasing Diversity in Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety:
A Virtual Symposium on Graduate Training Opportunities
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 | 9 AM - 12 PM Pacific | 12 PM - 3 PM Eastern
This virtual symposium is designed for students from historically underrepresented or disadvantaged backgrounds, and structured to provide resources and information to support the pursuit of graduate training opportunities in Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS). We will provide an introduction to OEHS, explore related graduate programs, examine the importance of diversity in OEHS, and discuss academic funding opportunities available through the 18 NIOSH Education and Research Centers (ERCs) around the country. Students will also have an opportunity to participate in industry panels highlighting faculty and practitioners of color, and to receive career guidance and feedback from HR and Diversity & Inclusion professionals responsible for hiring at their respective organizations.
