DEI Course Resources
The "Diversity in Chemistry" site provides excellent content that you can directly integrate into your courses to improve representation of minoritized groups. As the site states: "Diversity in Chemistry is meant to change the narrative and provide a method for interjecting diversity easily into your classroom. Introducing a diverse chemist at the beginning of each class or chapter can not only heighten visibility, but hopefully provide powerful role models for students of diverse backgrounds. The website is organized by subdiscipline. In each discipline, chemists are placed in chronological order based on birth year when birth years are provided."
Likewise, the "Diversify Chemistry" site provides an extensive data base of chemists in industry and academia who you could consider inviting for seminars or whose research you could highlight in your courses.
The vocabulary of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is extensive and often rapidly evolving. We believe it is important for all of our faculty, staff, and students to appreciate these subtleties and how they can affect individuals in our community. Toward this end, we provide links here to a number of glossaries that, together, cover a number of terms that have arisen in discussions on DEI efforts within the Department of Chemistry. Many of these contain references that provide additional background and context.
