I created DiversifyChemistry.com because I wanted to bring visibility to those from underrepresented groups in the academic chemistry community.
Diversify Chemistry in the news:
- Directory of academic chemists from underrepresented groups aims to inject diversity into conferences, job searches, and awards
- Database seeking to help to diversify chemistry gathers pace
- Grassroots initiatives and larger projects are both vital weapons in the battle for equality
- How scientists are fighting against gender bias in conference speaker lineups
- Professor builds network of underrepresented chemists in Diversify Chemistry
Must reads on diversity in science:

It’s officially #BlackInChemWeek!!! All week I’ll be highlighting my amazing #blackinchem colleagues at @DowNewsroom. Today I celebrate Dr. James Walker! He is a scientist in Core R&D, is the president of the Midland chapter of NOBCChE, and a fantastic volleyball player! https://t.co/lITym4kujL
#BlackInChem. My name is Abraham Beyene and I am a Group Leader @HHMIJanelia. We leverage chemical approaches to develop optical tools and technologies and go after problems that elude alternative methods of inquiry. And this could be your view from the lab. Get in touch! https://t.co/ibuwvPGnOn
Happy #BlackinChem week! I'm an assistant professor at @BMB_PSU and @psu_chemistry. My research interests are in combining molecular dynamics simulations with biochemical experiments to understand how proteins are allosterically regulated #blackinbiological #blackinphysical/comp https://t.co/4KuQkMIumY
Hi my name is Nikita Burrows, Ph.D. I am an Assistant Professor of Chemistry Education @monmouthu. #BlackinChemRollCall #BlackinCER #BlackInChem The #Burrowslab looks at the undergraduate chemistry laboratory as well as alternative assessments. Super excited for #BlackInChemWeek https://t.co/7odOjxmtfV
