NC State's Being an Ally in Academics has collaborated with the Genetics and Genomics Academythe Genetics and Engineering in Society Center and the Triangle Center for Evolutionary Medicine to organize a two-day workshop series titled "Genes and Society: Decolonizing Human Genetic Research." The series will explore the current and historical intersections of racism, systemic inequalities and human genetic research with an emphasis on inviting diverse and historically underrepresented groups as seminar speakers.

Being an Ally in Academics is pleased to host Krystal Tsosie, co-founder of the Native BioData Consortium, during the workshop series. The consortium is a nonprofit research institute led by Indigenous scientists and Tribal members in the United States who strive to ensure that advances in genetics and human health research benefit all Indigenous people. Tsosie earned a master's degree in bioethics and a master's degree in public health at Arizona State University and a Ph.D. in genomics and health disparities at Vanderbilt University.
