Discussion Cheminar: "Critical Mass Takes Courage: Diversity in the Chemical Sciences”

Collins’ chapter titled “Critical Mass Takes Courage: Diversity in the Chemical Sciences.” Discussions will continue in smaller groups in Zoom breakout rooms and then, inspired by the chapter, each group will be assigned a Black chemist to research and prepare a short presentation about with a guided Google Slides template. The event will conclude by bringing everyone back together to reflect on the research and activity.
