My art career was shaped by my lack of accessibility to a pipeline that would have led me to a job. The same can be said of my scientific career. In this post, I discuss what an ideal pipeline looks like.
I had a past that told me that I had to do whatever it took to reach the end of the road I was stuck on. But this piece of advice helped me realize that I can veer off course to find the path that’s right for me.
There is a lot of discussion in science right now about diversity (though not nearly enough). I’d like to focus today on, 1) how I define diversity and 2) what diversity does for science.
