This project was conceived by and is being executed by passionate scientists who work on this after hours without monetary compensation. Running this website costs money and we do this completely out-of-pocket. We would love to incorporate new features to this program and expand our outreach by, for example, sharing these stories through podcasts and direct visits to schools. We hope that our efforts support the next generation of scientists by showing them that physical appearance, personality, preferences, and overall uniqueness should not be a factor when considering a career in science.
If you are interested in helping us out in our efforts to increase and embrace diversity in science, here are some ways you can do so:
- Please consider donating to our GoFundMe campaign to support this project. We have many goals for this project, but we need your help to accomplish them.
- We are offering our #UniqueScientists stickers, t-shirts, racerback tank tops, and classic jersey tank tops as a fundraiser thanks to Genius Lab Gear. You can add your donation to your purchase before checking out!
