Future Science Group marks Black History Month 2022

28 February 2022

As part of Black History Month, the eCommunities at Future Science Group have put together a collection of interviews to explore stories of success, gain interesting insights into groundbreaking research and better understand the challenges facing Black people in STEM, straight from Black scientists.

These interviews highlight personal experiences of being Black in STEM, as we collate discussions with Black scientists from different disciplines to highlight why representation and equal opportunities within STEM are crucial. In addition, relevant eCommunities have explored this year’s theme of Black health and wellness to highlight the key barriers to progression in Black health. Join us in encouraging open and honest conversations about what it means to be a Black scientist in 2022.
