Community Engagement: Creating Inclusive Learning Spaces in Chemistry

Submitted by Sibrina Collins, Marburger STEM Center (MSC) at Lawrence Technological University

The Leadership Council (LC) of IONiC, the online community of inorganic chemistry educators, recently published a strong statement on moving the needle with diversity, equity and inclusion in the chemical sciences.[1] The LC of IONiC wrote, “We, as inorganic chemists, come from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to form one community. One benefit of the diversity is that we, by working together and learning from each other, become better educators and researchers.
