- The Why and How of Best Practices Tools? An Overview of Two Tools as Examples: In this talk, Professor Subramaniam will provide insight into developing best practices tools in terms of both structure and content. Two tools - one on support, annual review, and recognition and another one on how to talk about and discuss 'difference' such as gender, race, ethnicity, immigrant status - will serve as examples. Both these topics are relevant in the current context of the COVID pandemic and the protests for racial justice.
