Women in Chemistry
Like our sister group Women in Biology and Biological Engineering, we use an inclusive definition of "woman" and "female." We welcome trans women, genderqueer women and non-binary people. Additionally, we recognize that womens* experiences in science are intersectional, meaning that they are influenced by other aspects of our identity like race, socio-economic background and sexuality. By doing so, we hope to better support our department and community members.
The group was founded in 2012 by Kelly Kim, Shannon Stone, and Helen Yu and is endowed by Barbara Burger.
