Black in Geoscience aims to acknowledge, amplify, and support the work of Black earth and planetary scientists from around the world.
We aspire for equitable representation of Black Geoscientists and all scientists from historically underrepresented groups in STEM within science and society.
Who we are
We are a group of volunteer Black scientists and allies from around the world.
We want to acknowledge the unrecognized work of all the Black scientists and geoscience pioneers whose efforts were erased by history. We stand tall on your shoulders.
Who can join?
We welcome Black geoscientists, friends, and allies to get involved and/or join our email list.
