Resources: Organizations for women and minority scientists

leave a comment »

This afternoon, a college friend of mine asked me for tips on finding organizations for minority scientists. I told her I knew of a few, but decided it would be better to broaden the question to include groups for women scientists, and ask Twitter. As usual, I was overwhelmed with the helpful responses, so I figured I’d capture them here in case anyone wanted them all in one place. They’re in no particular order, and I’ll keep adding/reorganizing as I hear about more:

Thanks to @BoraZ, @scienceissexy, @BoneGirllPhD, @AtmosNews, @KiyomiD, @bigfeet5grl, @GregCASAA, @lualnu10, @mcshanahan, @elementsscience, @skalantari, @picardonhealth, @soulflsepulcher, @KT_Anna, @HappyFunTime, @coding_doc, @Minu_Vanch25, @sonnypatel, @MBIMichelle, @olearypd, @rejectedbanana, @aetiology

Since this happened — completely coincidentally — on the day my brother, David Jacob Oransky, died 17 years ago, I’d like to dedicate this resource to his memory. He was just 17 when he was killed in a car accident, but had already impressed everyone who knew him with his generosity and willingness to help people — not to mention all sorts of other qualities — so this is a fitting way to honor him.
