ASP Thompson Lecture - Science by and for all: Challenges and some possible solutions toward broadening pathways into the atmospheric sciences

Dr. Deanna Hence
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Like many arenas in the United States, broadening the inclusion of people and perspectives in the scientific enterprise continues to be a hot button issue. Terms like “diversity of thought” have been used, and misused, in the academy as a way of attempting to frame the desired end goal of what it means to have truly representative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Reaching this desired goal is especially important given the complex nature of the types of questions and problems the atmospheric sciences attempts to address.
