Sunday Gathering: Latinas in the Lab
March 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
About 19 percent of Americans claim Hispanic heritage, but only 2 percent of scientists are Latinas (only 4 percent are Hispanic males). That percentage drops when you consider the number of Latinas in environmental science. Despite the challenges facing young women of color who want to be scientists, many have succeeded. This morning, environmental scientist Adriana Morocho and marine biologist Tatiana Castro discuss their journeys as they battled cultural and social barriers to complete science degrees and pursue their passions.
This Gathering is at the meetinghouse and on Zoom. The Zoom link will be in the Weekly Announcements email and may be obtained by emailing [email protected]
