ASM fosters a culture of equity and inclusion to achieve diversity in science. We seek to create a culture where all individuals feel respected, are treated fairly, provided opportunities to develop professionally and excel in their chosen career pathway.
An essential part of ASM's mission is to build a scientific community that embraces diversity – a home that celebrates researchers from different backgrounds to share their findings, engage in scientific discourse and demonstrate their scientific expertise. Recent events in the U.S. have made it clear that we, as a community, have a long way to go in embracing equality.
Dr. Phoebe Lostroh, an Associate Professor and a member of ASM’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Taskforce, tells us about her science, advice for those who want a teaching career and her pathway to supporting the LGBTQ+ community.
