I am really tired of showing all old white dudes in my isotope geochemistry class. I’m hoping to put together a more diverse list of names and faces I can include. There are some obvious ones (Curie for example) but I could use a broader list. While I would welcome all suggestions, in particular I was hoping to make a list of indigenous isotope geochemists for Indigenous People’s day on Monday.
Can the collective hive mind help me out here?
I wonder if we could get a bit of funding from AGU or the Geochemical Society to help write Wikipedia pages sharing the stories of these more diverse contributions to our field.
