In honor of Black History Month, this episode of the Synapse Science podcast delves into the type of gender and racial biases faced by women of color in STEM fields. We geek out about some of the amazing contributions to the STEM fields from scientists who happen to be women of color. This is an important conversation to have, and gender/racial representation in STEM fields is extremely vital. That being said, if you know of scientists whose work is not as widely known or whose contributions are being undermined, spread the word! Get people talking about scientists from more diverse backgrounds. We encourage you to make your own podcast episode, YouTube video, social media post, etc. to continue this conversation. Show notes can be found on our website at http://synapsescience.com
