The undersigned will be ceasing our workshop activities related to the WAVES Workshop on Wednesday, June 10th in support of #ShutDownAcademia, #ShutDownSTEM, and the Black Lives Matter movement. To this end, I will no longer be presenting the Enrichment Seminar planned for that day. The undersigned encourage WAVES Workshop mentors and participants to consider suspending their own meetings and development work.

Stop. Stop. Reflect. Listen and learn first.

The undersigned encourage WAVES Workshop mentors and participants to instead consider engaging with conversations and materials related to the Black Lives Matter movement. We have collected a few here, but suggest that mentees and participants also seek out their own.
