Diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ) in STEM

A world of opportunity opened up for me through education. I have travelled to diverse places, met amazing people, and direct research on my favorite organisms, birds. That these opportunities are not available to everyone is wrong. We recognize the inequities that exist within STEM and academia and work towards understanding and dismantling the structure that sustains them.
