Are your events just for Black people?
No. Our events are absolutely not just for Black people. We welcome people from all backgrounds to participate in our events. We do, however, make it clear that our intentions are to uplift the Black community, and this is reflected in the voices that are amplified in the events, resources, and opportunities that Black in Science Communication facilitates. Anyone is welcome to support the mission of Black in Science Communication.
I’m an ally to the Black community and would like to support #BlackInSciComm. How can I do that?
If you do not consider yourself a part of the Black community and would like to contribute your time and skills to the group, please visit this website first to check your understanding of allyship. There are also many other free resources available. Once you’ve done this, please do not hesitate to contact us to learn how to become involved! Anyone is welcome to support the mission of Black in Science Communication.
