CSP Postdoctoral Researcher Jeffrey Paz Buenaflor with the Wissinger Group developed a toolkit that describes how representation and the instructor’s mindset and role matters when trying to improve diversity, equity, and inclusivity in chemistry programs.
Getting Started with Equity: Chemistry seeks to address the question: “How can I develop and curate an educational environment that is simultaneously justice-centered and equity-advancing in my Chemistry courses?”
Jeffrey and collaborators do not contend that this is the guide for educators committed to equity-advancing work; there are many worthwhile resources and tools that illuminate and recommend best practices for equity in higher education. It is not a comprehensive handbook, but a place to start having conversations around how academic departments can work toward equity and justice in their curricula and teaching.
