Being a scientist is more than conducting research and publishing articles in scientific journals for other scientists to read. It is our job to communicate our findings to the broader public and empower every person with information. Most importantly, it is our job to make the culture of science an inclusive space, where all identities and voices are welcome. As a community, our contributions toward discovery and knowledge is much greater when we have the strength of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Geosciences
The geology department at CWU had the honor and pleasure of listening to Jon Shellenberger speak on the meaning and importance of Indigenous landscapes on the Columbia Plateau.
transverseRANGES magazine is a great resource to learn about diverse paths in the geosciences. Read my personal journey here.
Mentoring supports professional success in the physical sciences, as well as increases the retention of students especially from marginalized groups in STEM. I have the pleasure of mentoring students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, including my work with the Sundial Project at Arizona State University.
