Why Scientists Need to Talk About Religion to Address Race and Gender Disparities in Science

October 5 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

In this lecture, three of the authors of “Secularity and Science: What Scientists Around the World Really Think About Religion” (Oxford University Press 2019), Elaine Howard Ecklund, David R. Johnson, and Brandon Vaidyanathan, will discuss core findings from the largest and most comprehensive international study of scientists’ attitudes toward religion, gender, and ethics ever undertaken, including a survey of 20,000 scientists and in-depth interviews with over 600 of them. The speakers will explore ways that scientists can engage with and understand the impact of religion on society to increase racial and gender representation in science. The lecture will include an opportunity for speakers to answer questions submitted by attendees.

This event is co-sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Religion (DoSER) program.
