The United States has a long and storied history of racism against people of color.
This was reflected in a variety of ways, from racist stereotypes that linked people of colour to criminality, to racist policies like Jim Crow laws that denied them voting rights, and to the lack of diversity in our workforce.
But now, thanks to a handful of pioneering new science programs, many of these things are being reversed.
We now have the world’s first comprehensive scientific education program for people of all backgrounds, including students from underrepresented backgrounds, to provide them with the tools they need to be scientists, and the opportunity to do so without fear of racism or discrimination.
The program was founded by a group of scientists, researchers and community leaders led by Dr. John F. Deacon, who has dedicated his career to the study of race and racism in the US.
We’re proud to be the first of its kind to provide students with a science education, and we’re grateful to our partners, like the National Science Foundation, who are helping us launch this program.
In addition to the training, students will have access to the latest science research, tools and resources to get them up to speed on the latest research, including new methods of scientific inquiry.
The program is open to students from low-income backgrounds, women, students of color, students with disabilities, and those who identify as LGBTQIA.
We also hope to give the students a deeper understanding of the scientific community, so that they can use their scientific expertise to help improve the lives of all people.
The success of the program depends on the students’ willingness to embrace and learn from each other, and with that, they need a diverse community to guide them.
The challenge for this project is that we’re in a unique situation with the new Trump administration, and its embrace of white nationalism, which has made it difficult for scientists to be included in the program.
This is a major concern of scientists across the country, who see themselves as underrepresented in their profession.
In the past, we’ve been able to include scientists from other fields who had different perspectives and experiences.
This year, however, we’ll need to make sure we’re able to recruit students who are willing to contribute to our program and who share our commitment to inclusion and diversity.
It’s a difficult challenge, and it will take time.
We need to work hard, and work with the Trump administration to help students understand and engage with the science of race.
But it’s essential that we also help students make better choices about the kinds of science they’re interested in.
As Dr. Deacons stated, it’s our job to help them understand the scientific literature, to be open-minded, and not to be afraid of challenging assumptions and ideas, because they’re the basis of our future.
And in doing so, we can create a more diverse and inclusive society.
We want to see students take science seriously.
We’ve been working to help young scientists understand the science and how to communicate it in a way that respects their different identities.
We encourage young people to engage in science education as part of their academic life, and for young people from under-represented backgrounds to consider STEM education.
