Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday for celebrating and honoring those who have passed. One tradition includes building ofrendas (altars) honoring the deceased using brightly colored skulls, marigolds, and possessions of the departed. Instead of sugar, our skulls are paper mache, but we invite you to decorate them in the spirit of Dia de los Muertos using paint, glitter, gems, flowers and other adornments.

In the first session of this CIRTLCast series, invited speakers will discuss the prevalence of implicit bias in STEM, particularly in the context of higher education. We will define and discuss key terms, such as equity, oppression, privilege, and microaggressions.
