  • This event has passed.

Oregon Bio’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee invites you to join the discussion at our Black History Month Book Club. Read a book or two and take part in important conversations regarding racism in Oregon, health disparities and increasing minority participation in STEM study and careers. Pick a title from the list below to read by Feb. 25. While we suggest the top two, you can also pick another title to share what you’ve learned and how it informs your view of today’s racial issues.

You must register in advance for this event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Suggested book titles:
1. Across That Bridge, John Lewis
2. Strength to Love, Martin Luther King Jr.
3. The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks, Jeanne Theoharis
