The GRC Power Hour™

The GRC Power Hour™


GRC has had a longstanding commitment to inclusion and addressing the challenges women and all underrepresented groups face in achieving equity in science. To fully address these challenges, GRC initiated The Power Hour, a new forum for conversations about the barriers to inclusivity within its 400 communities. The GRC Power Hour has been incredibly popular with both men and women, reflecting growing conversations in the sciences about issues including unconscious bias, mentoring and sponsorship, strategies for addressing harassment and inappropriate behavior, and the culture change needed to support the professional growth of all scientists throughout their careers.

The program has proven incredibly popular.  Chairs select a woman from their community to serve as the organizer for the session and each host tailors the program format to fit the needs of their community.  GRC provides suggested talking points and additional resources to help them get started.

"The session was tremendously valuable because participants of different stages and scientific career and representing both genders as well as different minorities exchanged their perspectives."

"The program was valuable because it provided the opportunity for networking and community building, and for sharing ideas and strategies."
