Room C20

Rigoberto Hernandez, Gompf Family Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Johns Hopkins and Director of OXIDE (Open Chemistry Collaborative in Diversity Equity), will present the Frontiers Lecture, "Advancing Chemistry through Diversity." 

OXIDE is a NSF/NIH/DoE-funded initiative that aims to change the academic chemistry infrastructure from the top down by working with the chairs of leading research-active chemistry departments to reduce inequitable policies and practices that have historically led to disproportionate representation on academic faculties with respect to gender, race-ethnicity, disabilities, and sexual orientation.

This event is free and open to the public.

Hosted by the UI Department of Chemistry, with support from the Obermann Center
