Bio + Books + Black History – Join the conversation March 31


Oregon Bio’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee invites you to continue the conversation we started during Black History Month by participating in our virtual Bio Book Club. Register to the right.

What books by Black authors have impacted you? Will you tell us about it? Attend and share your thoughts about a book from the curated list below (or other book or resource) by a Black author whose work informs your view of society’s racial issues. This sharing time will allow participants to take part in important and courageous conversations regarding racism, health disparities and how might we work together to create positive change. #letsreadtogether
