Helping make chemistry more inclusive for everyone.


I created DiversifyChemistry.com (in 2018) because I wanted to bring visibility to those from underrepresented groups in the chemistry community. I am incredibly grateful to Merck for funding the expansion of this site (in 2021) to include graduate students & postdocs as well as industrial chemists.

LGBTQ+ Role Models in Science

Made by Joby Razzell Hollis for @LGBT_Physics and sponsored by the Institute of Physics.

Science is for everyone, and should be accessible to anyone, and becoming a scientist can seem intimidating.

Nothing is more reassuring than seeing someone like you, or who you feel a connection to, has gone before and made a success of it.
