Learn More About Fostering Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Respect (DEIR) in the Chemistry Community

In this webinar from July 27, Dr. Rajendrani (Raj) Mukhopadhyay of the American Chemical Society, Shaina Lange of ACS Publications, and Kiyomi Deards of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln discuss fostering DEIR in the librarian and chemistry communities.

Raj Mukhopadhyay covers how the American Chemical Society (ACS) is working to fully realize the DEIR in ACS’s organizational culture as well as its products, programs, and services so that everyone in the chemical enterprise can thrive.

Shaina Lange highlights DEIR initiatives currently ongoing in the ACS Publications Division, including the author name change policy, demographics data collection, editor training and education, and the creation of an ombuds program.

Kiyomi Deards examines a selection of past, present, and future DEIR strategies used by herself and University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries. Additionally, she highlights DEIR strategies that individuals, departments, and organizations can pursue with varying levels of support.
