SC Astronomers Workshop: Empathy, Positionality, & Creating Inclusive Environments

May 15 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Empathy, Positionality, & Creating Inclusive Environments by Movement Consulting with Dra. Nicole Cabrera Salazar

Having an inclusive community within RASC creates a culture where marginalized people can thrive. This workshop focuses on the value and practice of empathy within our environments, as well as how positionality influences our perceptions. Participants will learn how to establish and grow a community of practice while increasing individual awareness and insight.

Dra. Cabrera Salazar has a PhD in Astronomy from Georgia State University, but her real passion lies in social justice. As an advocate for equity and inclusion in STEM, she believes that everyone should have access to science regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, or socioeconomic status. Dra. Cabrera Salazar also believes in empowering marginalized people to pursue STEM careers not despite their background, but because of it.

Dra. Cabrera Salazar’s social justice work includes mentoring and advising marginalized students, program development, community organizing, developing and facilitating workshops, and public speaking. She has some excellent TED talks on YouTube. She is continually growing and expanding her knowledge of social issues, learning their history, status quo, and future implications. She believes in the critical importance of understanding context before implementing solutions, and using research as well as lived experience to inform her work.
