A coherent world is one where everyone's story gets told.
why equity & inclusion?
When most people picture a scientist, they probably don't imagine someone who looks like me: a woman with brown skin and unruly curls. That's because women, people of color, people from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, and people with other marginalized identities face systemic obstacles to entering and staying in the STEM careers.
Moral obligation aside, if we want to do the best science we can, we need to remove those obstacles and welcome the diverse set of experiences and perspectives that marginalized people can offer.
I do my small part in removing those obstacles by mentoring underrepresented minority students, giving career development talks, and organizing equity and inclusion seminars at my home institution.
If you'd like to invite me to give a career development or E&I talk, please send me an email!
