Lecture by Dr. Naomi Oreskes, the Henry Charles Lea Professor of the History of Science at Harvard University and the author of Why Trust Science?

Science has lagged behind other professions in working to purposefully create opportunities to expand diversity in its workforce. Critics of such efforts have framed diversity as antithetical to the pursuit of excellence in scientific inquiry, but this framing has the problem backwards. In this talk, I argue that we cannot have scientific excellence without diversity.
