Event Description

Many of the people who have made fundamental advances in the sciences have problematic histories that can include racism, sexism, and other colonialist attitudes. How does one reconcile the significant advances made by these individuals with the problematic attitudes that they held or hold? Join us for this important conversation between scientists as we mark the Chicago Academy of Sciences / Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum's 164th birthday during our annual Founders Week celebration. We'll delve into the problematic history of the scientific field and learn from the past, and from each other, in order to move the field forward. We have gathered an excellent panel of scientists, thinkers, and movers to reflect on their experiences in their scientific fields and share their insights into how we can personally and collectively make change.
