Black in Genetics

Black in Genetics is on a mission to disseminate scientific knowledge and dismantle racism within the field. The organization connects Black geneticists to employers and resources and also provides a space for conversation on advancing equity. To advance the first goal, the group launched a job board that highlights world-wide employment opportunities. The site also posts short biographies of Black geneticists, genetic counselors, educators, and other members of the field, creating opportunities for mentorship and visibility. Additionally, readers will find information about the group's events. For example, in August 2020 the organization launched a week-long series of programming, #BlackInGeneticsWeek, to "celebrate both Blackness and the wonderful field of Genetics." The work to amplify Black geneticists continues on social media platforms and users can find @BlackInGenetics on both Twitter and Instagram. Black in Genetics is led by its founder, Alexis Stutzman (a PhD Candidate in Genetics and Molecular Biology Curriculum at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill) and its President, Markia Smith (a PhD Student in Pathobiology and Translational Science, also at the UNC Chapel Hill).
