This workshop will help agricultural genome to phenome researchers create more expansive and inclusive teams and ensure that we leverage the knowledge and expertise of marginalized and underrepresented groups. Participants will learn how to directly engage with other researchers in networks to create more inclusive and dynamic teams, diving into how to target communication with model stakeholders, employ empathy maps for understanding, and create journey maps of collective experience. Workshop attendees will get a chance to meet other members of the international network, discuss current data sharing and team building practices.
