Everyone Deserves the Opportunity to Succeed

Because everyone deserves the same opportunity to succeed in science. Underrepresented scientists have fewer role models and smaller networks, which makes it more challenging to climb the career ladder. They often also carry a greater burden outside work, such as caring for family.

Working Twice as Hard to Get Half as Far

The disproportionate challenges effectively exclude these scientists from science, creating an unbalanced culture where white males dominate the top positions, which perpetuates the inequality. Empowering the underrepresented to progress to the top academically, by providing support and a sense of belonging, by coaching them through the academic process, and by alleviating some of their burdens at work, will ultimately position them as policy shapers, resource controllers, and decision makers, to further promote equity from within.
