Geoscience programs should use this moment to pivot and to become more inclusive.
sister"Geoscience has become an incredibly interdisciplinary field, and there are so many sub-disciplines where an intense, weeks-long field experience simply isn’t necessary training." @bdzombak #DisabilityPrideMonth #InvisibleIllness
Researchers fear a wave of data censorship after the manager of Florida's COVID-19 dashboard is removed from her post
sisterRebekah Jones "single-handedly created two applications in two languages, four dashboards, six unique maps with layers of data functionality for 32 variables covering a half a million lines of data" and then was fired for refusing to manipulate the data.
Women still are underrepresented in STEM fields. But some female scientists are now gaining recognition—and due credit—for their breakthroughs.

@AngelaDSaini on institution-enabled sexism, sexual harassment, and the burden placed on #womeninSTEM to fix it all (ignore the cheery title)
My identity as a Kenyan-American is tied with my duty to serve the general society as an epidemiologist, to work in public service, and to advance global health.

Christine Kamamia (@mamakuikui) shares her story as part of our series with #ScienceRising.
As someone who is educated in the science behind climate and environmental change, it would be wrong of me to not shout from the rooftops.
sisterShould people in STEM get political about climate change? Yasmin Cole says yes!
For the #ClimateStrike today, @glaciergalyas is sharing her story. It's the latest in our series with #ScienceRising leading up to #NationalVoterRegistrationDay.
Spelman College, the all-women historically black college located in Atlanta, was recently ranked as the best historically black college or university (HBCU) by U.S. News & World Report. Well, it looks like that train of black excellence will not be...
sisterGo @SpelmanCollege! Establishing a first-of-its-kind "Center of Excellence for Minority Women in STEM."

But only because we have had access to health care, emotional support and institutional backing
sister"We now know that there’s more than one kind of 'successful' scientist, and that those of us with disabilities, differences in thinking, and medical challenges are well-suited for rich scientific careers—as long as we have true access."
sisterOn our way to the NIH listening session: “Working Group to Change the Culture to End Sexual Harassment.”
Looking forward to supporting #MeTooSTEM hero @mclneuro & continuing to demand real action from our most powerful STEM institutions.

sister🌟TODAY🌟 is the last day to pitch for our practical advice series!
What advice would you give someone else in your shoes? #WomeninSTEM #NonBinaryinSTEM #NativeandSTEM #BlackandSTEM #WoCinSTEM #LatinxinSTEM #QueerinSTEM
There is a lack of queer visibility in science fields. For transgender people, this visibility is even lower.
sister"These experiences reinforce the sense that my trans identity is not compatible with my participation in scientific communities."
@lila_leatherman shares their experience, and how science can -- and needs to -- do better.
Jedidah Isler dreamt of becoming an astrophysicist since she was a young girl, but the odds were against her: At that time, only 18 black women in the United States had ever earned a PhD in a physics-related discipline. In this personal talk, she...
sisterThis TED Talk by Dr. Isler is one of our favorites ever. 💫
Women are scientists, community members, and changemakers, and they made a difference in our 2018 U.S. midterm elections.
sisterWe need everyone at the table when it comes to STEM advocacy.
"It's not as hard as it seems!" writes @ZaarlyLiz. "Gather a group of friends and a shared concern and schedule a meeting."
Lots more great advice here 👇 #womeninSTEM #ScienceRising
Many women in science thought that meritocracy was the antidote to sexism. Now some have decided on a more direct approach.
sisterStudies have found biases that favor male scientists in:
👨🔬 start-up funds for labs
👨🔬 credit for authorship of papers
👨🔬 letters of recommendation
👨🔬 speaking invitations
Glad to see #MeTooSTEM/#ScienceToo in @NYTScience.
Congratulations to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (ISEF 2007) on winning her election to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District! In 2007, Alexandria placed second in the International Science and Engineering Fair in the Microbiology category...
