Women Chemists of Color Summit Videos

With support from the National Science Foundation*, the American Chemical Society (ACS) hosted a Women Chemists of Color Summit at the 240th ACS National Meeting in Boston. This Summit aimed to broaden awareness of challenges for women of color (African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic/Latinas, and Asian Americans) found at the specific intersection of gender and ethnicity; to gather more data about women chemists of color; and, to provide a forum for building community among women of color.
