Are you a scientist passionate about inclusivity, diversity, equity, and accessibility in science?

About us

The Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility in Science (IDEAS) Journal Club is a monthly gathering designed to foster discussion and broaden awareness of challenges in the scientific community. 

At each meeting, we provide a meal and a thought-provoking resource for discussion. Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are especially encouraged to attend, but all are welcome! We are aware of the limited time of our participants, so we strive to pick discussion items that take less than 10-minutes to review before the meeting. Further, we provide a brief summary of the resource(s) at the start of each meeting. Spaces are limited due to our current funding, so be sure to register early for each IDEAS Journal Club meeting to secure your spot. Don't miss out on this opportunity to engage with like-minded individuals and contribute to positive change in science. Attendees will also have an opportunity to win some science-themed prizes at the meeting!

We thank the GSA’s Quality Money Program for funding this initiative! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
