“C&EN continues to highlight diverse scientists and their contributions. The Trailblazer series has featured LGBTQ+ chemists we should know about, celebrated the scientific contributions of distinguished Black chemists who are improving our world, and profiled women entrepreneurs. These notable editions were created through partnership with guest editors and diverse and talented journalists, artists, and scientists. Culture change requires not only emphasizing the behaviors we want to see but also discouraging toxic behaviors we want to eliminate, such as sexual harassment. I’ve deeply appreciated C&EN articles on this subject.”
"Focus on minority experiences in STEM, not just numbers Diversity among scientists can foster better science, yet engaging and retaining a diversity of students and researchers in science has been difficult. Actions that promote diversity are well defined, organizations are increasingly focused on diversity, and many institutions are developing initiatives to recruit and enroll students from underrepresented minority (URM) groups (racial, ethnic, gender, sexual identity, or persons with disabilities)."
