What happens when a physicist, a chemist and a biologist walk into a UX classroom....?

You’ve heard the term “egghead,” but have you ever really looked at an egg? Scientists Nick Gross, a physicist, Jennifer Novotney, a chemist, and Dr. Holmes, a biologist, share their thoughts, experiments and views on that ever-important object, the egg.

What does it mean to continue to come out on behalf of our own and others’ diversity? How do we include ourselves? Does inclusion equal homogeneity? What do we grapple with to build new kinds of conversations and collaborations that take us to a new place?

Dr. Raquell Holmes addresses these questions in her talk at the conference, on January 7th, about the importance of ensembles in building the future of black women in computing.

The improvscience Chat is an online conversation series, open to all. Join us in these free, informal chats that expand our conceptualizations of science and scientists. The Chat is hosted by Dr. Holmes and happens every other month at 2 pm ET.

Experience the philosophy and culture of a company dedicated to play and performance in science. Each chat focuses on a new topic addressing play and performance in the context of science:

Successful presentations are a combination of relevant, inspired content and a compelling, creative delivery. Dr. Holmes and her colleague Mia Anderson return for the fourth year to the Communication of Science Course in the Systems Biology Program at Harvard University.
