Why diversity and inclusion at conferences matter
And why it’s your responsibility too
Most of us know how beneficial scientific conferences are; as graduate students, we often make our first professional connections outside of our own department through such meetings. New collaborations develop, cutting edge research is announced and careers are made at meetings and conferences. Having access to these opportunities is critical to career advancement in the near and long term. Unfortunately, scientific conferences are not equally accessible or welcoming to all.
