"Nature" special issue: Overcoming racism in science


In its current special issue (the first in its history to be guest-edited), the prestigious journal Nature confronts the discriminatory legacy of the scientific enterprise and its part in the exclusion and disadvantage of BPoC and other historically marginalized people.


Edited by Melissa Nobles, Chad Womack, Ambroise Wonkam, and Elizabeth Wathuti, the issue features numerous articles on "Witnessing racism," "Systemic racism," and "Building a fairer future."
