Our astronomy group provides a safe space to discuss issues facing astronomers at the intersection of race and gender. Our goal is to work to create awareness of and dismantle the barriers we encounter due to this “double jeopardy”. In addition to sharing experiences, we support each other, share skills and grow and strengthen our networks. Through this mentorship and guidance, we hope to transform astronomy into a truly diverse and inclusive space where we all can thrive.
