The University Libraries invite students, faculty and community members to bring a brown bag lunch to Kenan Science Library and talk about diversity in science once a month.
The series is called the Diversity in Science Brown Bag Lunch Series, an event in which a speaker is invited to discuss their journey in science through the scope of diversity and inclusion.
Therese Triumph, one of the creators of the program and the interim head of Kenan Science Information Services, said she got the idea for the program after attending a diversity lunch series for librarians.
“I was sitting there at the meeting, and was like you know, maybe we should do this for science,” she said.
Triumph said she then reached out to the Allies for Minorities and Women in Science and Engineering, or AM_WISE, a graduate student organization on campus that co-sponsors the program with the University Libraries.
