The lack of diversity in STEM is an important issue and one that I want to help the ecology and evolutionary biology community address. It is our responsibility to educate ourselves about diversity issues in STEM, and to learn how best to combat bias and prejudice and to promote social equality.

"Diversity: Pride in science" - Nature - on being LGBTQ in STEM
"Women in Science" Nature - Special Issue
How Diversity Makes Us Smarter - Scientific American
"How to Queer Ecology: one Goose at a Time" - Orion magazine
"Equality: Standing out" - Nature, about how a "welcoming lab environments and networking organizations help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender scientists to excel."
