Take Action Tuesday

Yesterday was #indigenouspeoplesday. Toady we ask you to take action and show your support for indigenous people in STEM:

  1. Follow, listen and amplify indigenous folks of STEM. Dr. Kat Milligan-Myhre put together a this list of people to follow, and a great thread on how to show your support.

  2. Use this online map or application to find the indigenous land and language of where you are. Acknowledge the indigenous land and people at the beginning of meetings or during your science talks (for example, you can add a slide of acknowledgement at the end).

  3. Consider a donation to SACNAS. The SACNAS annual conference takes place next week and @500WomenSci will be there - let us know if you want to meet up!

  4. Make a Wikipedia page of an indigenous scientist! There are plenty of WikiProjects to get involved with, whether you’re in Australia, North America or elsewhere.

  5. Indigenous and looking for a group of folks who can support you? Check your University for a local chapter or indigenous student groups!
