Resources for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Respect

Take a closer look at the array of resources to advance diversity, equity, inclusion & respect in the sciences. 

The collection of resources featured here includes articles, videos, podcasts, books, and guides about histories of racism and oppression primarily in the United States. These resources are meant to enhance opportunities for individuals and groups to provide further enrichment and education on anti-racism. This list is not exhaustive and will be updated periodically. More information in this disclaimer.

Anti-racism work requires sustained, proactive education and engagement as well as systemic, intentional efforts at micro- and macro-levels. We encourage you to use these specific resources in tandem with others across other personal and professional networks.
