We are dedicated to helping under-represented minorities in academia and people in under-served communities.
Our group is involved in educational outreach programs that are targeted to students and early career scientists from under-represented minority groups in Earth and Environmental Sciences.
Environmental Science without Borders (ESWB) is an international peer-mentorship program connecting people in the Earth & Environmental Sciences.
ESWB connects scientists from research institutions in developed countries with students and scientists from developing countries. By sharing knowledge and resources across borders, we hope to make the journey for all students and early-career scientists easier and more accessible.
Studies have shown that students are more likely to pursue a discipline if they see a professor of similar gender or race in that same discipline.
Faces of Diversity in Science hopes to explore the stories of minority professors -- their struggles and success stories – with the aim of using them to encourage minority students in STEM disciplines.
