James Davie attended a meeting of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biochemistry (IUBMB), which took place August 19-22 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He brought his knowledge of CSMB to meetings of the IUBMB executive committee in his capacity as IUBMB General Secretary.
One of my IUBMB activities will be to link Trainee Committees that are active in the societies affiliated with IUBMB. So this is an international effort. The goal is to help establish a trainee committee to those societies that do not have one, and second see if we can form a IUBMB international trainee committee.
The CSMB executive and trainee committees look forward to working with the CSMB to promote the careers of trainees around the world.
The CSMB applauds the launch by Minister Kristy Duncan and Bill Morneau of the Dimensions pilot program, in an event at Ryerson University today.
The Dimensions pilot program is intended to publicly recognize post-secondary institutions seeking to increase equity, diversity and inclusion in their environments. The program objective is to foster transformational change within the research community at Canadian post-secondary institutions by identifying and eliminating obstacles and inequities in the research ecosystem to support equitable access to funding opportunities, embed EDI-related considerations in research design and practices, and increase equitable and inclusive participation.
