As we celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth across the @WhiteHouse, we are thrilled to highlight Dr. Alondra Nelson, OSTP’s Deputy Director for Science and Society. Dr. Nelson joins OSTP from the Institute of Advanced Study and the Social Science Research Council. #BlackInSTEM
On S&T's societal role, Dr. Nelson says, “We learn more deeply about science & technology’s social implications– their implications on ethics & social justice– when we seriously grapple w/ the experience of vulnerable communities that have been hurt most by science & technology.”
“As a Black woman researcher, I am keenly aware of those who are missing from rooms. We have a responsibility to work together to make sure that our science & technology reflect us and when it does it truly reflects all of us, that it reflects who we truly are together.”
