Diversity in Science
Diversity in science, and in society, is one of the core values that FutureForAll.org was founded on, a future for all.
Historically, in the United States, science and engineering fields have had particularly low representation of women and members of several racial and ethnic minority groups. More recently, however, women and racial and ethnic minorities increasingly have been choosing a wider range of degrees and occupations. – National Science Foundation S&E Indicators 2018.
Diversity helps science because people from different backgrounds might look at a problem or an idea from different perspectives, which can lead to new and better scientific discoveries.
The future will be better if we all work together. If you know of a group, organization, or resource that should be added to the list below, please let us know.
