    Hi

    sorry I couldn't come to your session.  double scheduled.  but this is perfect for some of our Social justice, equity, diversity and inclusion work.  What does our group need to do to contribute to this remarkable work.  O also wonder if I can introduce your work to ASCN's working group and solicit contributions.

    Tell me more?  Maybe we can briefly discuss at tomorrow's social or at some other time by email or zoom?

    Pat

    Dax,

    I'm wondering if you could partner with American Indian Science & Engineering Society and/or SACNAS on this project?

    This is amazing! With my colleague Rachel Pigg at Univ Louisville, we're embarking on a project to interview scientists from historically excluded groups, and having them explain a figure from their research. I would love to find out how our efforts could intersect or synergize.

    Hi,

     

    This is a really nice resource. I have tried to find a scientists to feature for many of the major topics when I cover them in either Introductory Biology or Cell Biology.

    Do you accept suggestions?
