Better Allies Book Club Discussion, Part II


Shifting Your Behavior

In an effort to promote continual education and discussion, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Working Group (DEI-WG) at the US-RSE is starting up a book club / discussion group.

Dr. Cherri Pancake gave an inspiring talk, “Can We Change the Face of Computing?” to kick off our DEI Speaker Series and was enthusiastic about the book “Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces” by Karen Catlin, so this is the first book we’re choosing to read and discuss.

The discussion will be in three parts, following the structure of the book. Previous attendance to part one of this event is not required.

  1. Sign up for the book club discussion
  2. Buy the book (or get it from your local library)
  3. Read “Part Two: Shifting Your Behavior” (pages 59-152), and come prepared to discuss it

When: Tuesday, June 22 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET / 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PT

Attendees will be provided with a Zoom link, by email, one hour before the event.
