Introducing a new resource for ecology and evolutionary biology

Gina Baucom and Meghan Duffy noted and lamented the lack of female scientist getting the big ecology and evolution awards.

And then they decided to do something about it.

I give you DiversifyEEB, a list of female and/or underrepresented minority researchers in Ecology and Evolution. The idea is to have a go to list of minorities in the scientific community who are willing to give a talk at conferences or seminar series. So if you’re organizing a conference and thinking “How can I make my invited speakers more diverse?”, consult this list. There is now a way.

Go read all about the motivation and the list itself over at Dynamic Ecology.
