Science is a human pursuit. Science should be a safe space. Science is for everyone.
Recent political developments have put everyone on edge.
No matter how you feel, or how you voted, or how you identify, you should be welcomed into this grand pursuit we call science.
People should feel safe in the lab and in the field.
In my lab, you will be welcomed and you will feel safe. I will be your mentor and ally. I will support you and advocate for you.
I will not tolerate harassment.
You can come to me and I will listen.
We can make science an example for our society.
