Is Science Really "Value-Neutral"?

This workshop, designed for future leaders in physics, uses scientific research to examine the concepts of unconscious bias and discrimination. Participants will be invited to critically examine the ideal of “value-neutral” science, while diving into the history (and present) of discrimination and exclusion, and how these problems can be overcome. From Albert Einstein resisting racial segregation, to Black scientists having their work stolen, there is much to discover in this training.
