The North American Arabidopsis Steering Committee (NAASC) is committed to promoting a global plant sciences community that reflects the true diversity of all its members. To further this mission, the NAASC Diversity and Inclusion Task Force has created the DiversifyPlantSci online resource, a list of plant biologists from under-represented groups to reference for speakers, reviewers, and participants for career or mentorship opportunities.

This list is intended to highlight the diversity within the global plant science community.

We hope to increase diversity and inclusion by making it easy to expand invitations past one’s personal networks.

To Add yourself fill out this google form: https://goo.gl/forms/s461eDrbKzoK1JzD2        

  1. Nominate yourself if you are a plant scientist who: identifies as a woman; identifies as LGBTQIA+; has a disability; and/or is a member of an under-represented ethnic or racial group***.        
  2. Please do not nominate others, we allow self-registration only. However we strongly encourage you to forward this form’s URL to others that you know and invite them to consider signing up for inclusion.

GUIDELINES FOR LIST USAGE                               

*we’ve used some language from the DiversityEEB list, and here’s their reference: https://diversifyeeb.com/entries/                                                                       

You may view the entries to identify diverse plant scientists for conferences, hiring, awards, etc.                                                                 

You may self-nominate by filling in the google form: https://goo.gl/forms/s461eDrbKzoK1JzD2         

Please do not nominate others, we allow self-registration only. However we strongly encourage you to forward this form’s URL to others that you know and invite them to consider signing up for inclusion.                                                                                                                 

We welcome the use of information provided for distributing relevant announcements, however, please use the list judiciously and do not simply spam members.

Moreover, a personal email is much more effective than a mass mailing. If you do send an email to more than one person, please use the ‘bcc’ option to reduce the likelihood of an annoying ‘reply-all’ chain.”                                                                                                                 

Filters for several categories are listed in the DiversifyPlantSci list under Data–> Filter Views: Selecting a Filter view will show only names in that category. To reset, select “None”                                                             

While we are aware that there are other categories of under- representation or disadvantage within plant sciences, we are focusing on the categories of gender/racial/ethnicity/sexual orientation/disability                                                                                                                 

All my best,
