Please consider serving! You can learn more and apply here:

VOLUNTEER APPEAL: The goal of the RACE project is to help individuals of all ages better understand the origins and manifestations of race and racism in everyday life by investigating race and human variation through the framework of science.

RACE explores three primary themes:

· The science of human variation and where current scientific understanding is inconsistent with popular notions of race;

· The history of the idea of race, with an emphasis on the role of science in shaping the concept of race; and

· The contemporary experience of race and racism in the United States, and the often invisible ways race and racism have infiltrated laws, customs, and institutions.


The exhibit will be on display in DEC and JAN at Apache Mall, and FEB-APR at Rochester Public Library. Organizing Partners are looking for volunteers to support the exhibit.

2010 Highlights


Faculty, staff and students of Mayo Clinic and visitors to Rochester have had a special opportunity to view an extraordinary exhibit entitled RACE: Are We so Different? at the Rochester Public Library. The American Anthropological Association teamed with the Minnesota Science Museum in 2006 to create the original exhibit. Mayo Clinic joined with the Rochester Public Library so that the exhibit could be brought to the Rochester community this summer. Dawn Littleton (DL), Head of Public Services at Mayo Clinic Libraries, who assisted with the exhibit and two library employees who attended the exhibit offered these comments.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
