A Moral Imperative: Retaining Women of Color in Science Education
AbstractThis article considers the experiences of a group of women science students of color who reported encountering moral injustices, including misrecognition, lack of peer support, and disregard for their altruistic motives. We contend that university science departments face a moral imperative to cultivate equal relationships and the altruistic power of science. Résumé Cet article considère les expériences d’un groupe d’étudiantes en science de couleur qui rapportèrent avoir rencontré des injustices morales, y compris le manque de considération, le manque d’appui par leurs pairs, et le manque d ‘égard envers leurs motifs altruistiques. Nous soutenons que les départements de science des universités font face à un impératif moral de cultiver des relations égales et le pouvoir altruistique de la science.
