June 2020

President’s Message – Martha Werler

June 3, 2020: Between my submitting the message below for the SER newsletter, George Floyd was murdered. I feel this SER newsletter cannot be distributed without acknowledging this horrific display of police brutality, on top of so many others, and the structural racism that underlie them. I feel grief for communities of color, frustration with my country, and anger toward those who deny systemic racism. I’m sad that our society is stuck in a place where statements that condemn racism, police brutality, and excessive force are needed when they should be inherent in our everyday beings and actions. I know that SER members are concerned about inequality within our organization. Results from the Diversity and Inclusion survey in 2018 showed racial disparities across various dimensions of SER, which we must overcome. Let’s use this moment to effect change! But how? What can SER do to help overcome racial injustices? Your ideas are wanted and needed. On Monday, June 15 at 1:00, SER will host an on-line forum to discuss possibilities. Dr. Sherman James will speak, followed by a panel discussion. Read more

SPC President’s Message – Dana Pasquale

I hope this finds you all well. As everyone knows by now, there will not be an in-person meeting in June. Instead, the SER Annual Meeting will be held in Boston from December 15-18, 2020. Registration is open and we hope to see you there.

During the week that the Annual Meeting should have been held, please look out for virtual events. The SER calendar is still being updated, but definitely be on the lookout for a “Get to Know SPC” event that is open to anyone, even people who are not SPC members. This is a great time to learn what we do and let us know what would be most helpful to you (students, postdocs, and early career specifically) in terms of programming, including what you were looking forward to or counting on for the in-person meeting in June. It’s a great time to meet the new Officers, too – including John Pamplin II, who will be stepping into the role of SPC President-Elect beginning in June. John has been an active SPC member for years and we are excited for him to take a more active role.  Read more
