Webinar: Addressing structural racism in and through work as an Indigenous focused prevention scientist: Opportunities for the new generation of scholars to make change
Presented by the National Institute on Drug Abuse in partnership with the Society for Prevention Research, the Native Children’s Research Exchange Scholar Program (NCRE), and INSPIRE: Indigenous Substance Use and Addictions Prevention Interdisciplinary Research Education.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Society for Prevention Research (SPR), Native Children Research Exchange, and INSPIRE would like to invite you to participate in an online discussion, “Addressing structural racism in and through work as an Indigenous focused prevention scientist: Opportunities for the new generation of scholars to make change”. In the wake of the events of the last year, confronting structural racism, the systems that work in various ways to perpetuate racial group inequity, has become a clear mandate. Making progress is critical in all sectors of society, including academe, research, and policy. This session will focus on the ways that a new generation of scholars focused on Indigenous prevention research are and can work to implement meaningful change, including by insisting that this burden be addressed by all scholars – not just Indigenous scholars. Panelists will include early career and senior scholars and will feature a discussion of relevant topics. The focus will include both making changes within research institutions as well as exploring how research can help to address structural racism and structural disadvantage in Indigenous communities and can inform policy.
