Navigating the scientific waters as a Black woman
* Renée Christie, CBA, Canada
This talk is open to anyone interested in hearing the views of a Black woman who has taken a non-traditional path in science to arrive at a position in the agrictech industry. To get the most out of this presentation, the audience must have an open mind. My goal here is to be thought-provoking and lead the audience to introspection and acknowledgement of one's biases. In this presentation composed of three parts, I will quickly relate my journey, then view from my perspective the side of the supervisor/mentor/teaching instructor and that of fellow students.
