Halloween Symposium 2022

Frightfully Fun 2022 Halloween Symposium

It was great to be back in person for the 2022 Halloween Symposium hosted by the DEI Task Force. The day kicked off with three selected speakers, followed by an excellent keynote from Luis Carvajal-Carmona, and ended with an in-depth discussion of the Genome Center's climate. The DEI Task Force will use the feedback from the discussion to host future events.

We thank the sponsors for supporting the Halloween Symposium and everyone for participating.
