EMBER NETWORK OBJECTIVE
The objective of the Environments and Metrics in Biology Education and Research (EMBER) network is to coordinate efforts of researchers with interests in diversity from the education, biology, psychology and sociology fields. The EMBER network focuses on expanding an understanding of how to create inclusive, supportive and engaging environments to foster the success of diverse students. In the incubator phase, the EMBER network will establish a website linked to an interaction forum and host a workshop to bring EMBER collaborators together to facilitate communication, collaboration and plan the full network. While the focus of the network is bioscience education and research, new metrics and paradigms developed by EMBER collaborators are expected to be broadly applicable to other science, technology engineering and math (STEM) disciplines.
EMBER NETWORK ACTIVITIES
The EMBER research coordination network will address significant central questions concerning student experiences that affect retention and success. The focus and activities of the EMBER network will address multiple Action Items from Vision and Change, A Call to Action (Brewer & Smith, 2011). Making the environments of bioscience and education more inclusive will help all students and advance the Vision and Change agenda.
