Welcome to the Junior Faculty Equality Focus Group Seminar Series at Karolinska Institutet. We invite you to a conversation with Sarahi L. Garcia, a microbial-ecologist, and Laura Andreoli, a rheumatologist, who founded equity initiatives in the academic workplace.

Despite equity efforts at the local and national levels, invisible and visible discriminatory barriers persist in academia. To dismantle those barriers for everyone, we need to evaluate ourselves, our immediate work environment, and our institutions.

Join our interactive conversation with Sarahi and Laura, who have established equity initiatives in their respective fields and professional networks.

They will share their journeys, the main messages, and the limitations of the initiatives. We hope this dialogue will spark your curiosity to learn more about inequities in academia and challenge you to evaluate your own biases and how you can be part of the solutions.
