Diversity Considerations When Marching for Science

Will you be participating in a March for Science this April 22 in D.C. or any of the 300+ other sites in the U.S.? The central March for Science organization has faced criticism over its handling of diversity, equity, and inclusion as reviewed recently. Now Dr. Zuleyka Zevallos continues her critique in a new DiverseScholar original article: Analyzing the March for Science Diversity Discourse. Connect with Dr. Zevallos on Twitter at @OtherSociology to follow this story and her work. DiverseScholar is proud to commission such original writing/scholarship especially to support the work of underrepresented authors.
