We feel keenly the scarcity of Black scientists in Canada. The dearth of role models and mentors affects the aspirations of Black youth, the career progression and success of new Black scientists, and the ability of non-Black people to imagine accomplished scientists who look like us.
Under-representation of Black scientists also robs Canada of innovative talent needed to tackle the pressing issues of the day.
We have created this community to support action to change these realities.
