Rutgers Diversity in Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology supports equitable hiring practices, sustained mentoring, and collaborative research opportunities to develop an inclusive scientific community in both the department and across the Rutgers campus. We believe there is immense value in bringing a diverse range of voices to the table. Diversity leads to fresh perspectives for addressing and solving challenges, and inclusion makes stronger and more successful research teams.

We are called to integrate the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion into all aspects of our university.

The CCB Diversity Committee wants your input for selecting a diverse set of speakers who can discuss science AND non-science topics with students. Follow the link below to submit a nominee name for our next event!

The CCB Diversity Committee is pleased to host the Fall 2023 mini-symposium in our Diversity in Chemistry Series on November 3rd, 2023. These events highlight the careers of chemists from diverse backgrounds, and provide our students the opportunity to interact with new mentors and learn from their personal experiences in STEM. This event will feature three guest speakers, and is divided into two sessions:

Panel Discussion Session, 10:00am - 11:30am

Join us for a casual discussion with our speakers about their careers and non-science topics, including career paths in chemistry, their personal experiences in STEM, intersectionality in the lab, and DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) challenges and initiatives. This special session is open to all undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-docs! 

Seminar Presentations, 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Come learn about each speaker's exciting work in their field! Stay tuned for more details.
