Color of Science

Engaging Critical Perspectives from Scientists of Color and the Indigenous

Gradient image

Color of Science is an initiative where scientists of color and from indigenous communities talk about their experiences and struggles in science, and examine the role of color theory and its implications in science.

We invite all members of the Aalto community and the general public to join our events. While the series invites speakers of color and the indigenous, we expect the themes and concerns to be both timely and of interest to a wide-range of participants within and outside Aalto University.

We expect audiences to learn, exchange perspectives, and share their own experiences and stimulating ideas to expand on the thematic topics discussed.

The Color of Science initiative is proudly supported by the School of Science Diversity and Inclusivity fund.
