Close your eyes and imagine a physicist. What does this person look like? Was it a white guy? Well, if it was, you might be guilty of reaffirming stereotypes, but you wouldn’t be wrong statistically speaking. According to the American Institute of Physics, less than 1% of American physicists are women of color. This week, we sit down with one such rarity: groundbreaking physicist Hattie Carwell.
From a donation of a million masks to help protect vulnerable healthcare workers to committed research on a potential vaccine, the company has activated quickly in several key ways to help address the outbreak.
Since 2011, Freeport-McMoRan’s Pollinator Conservation Initiative has sought to increase the habitat for pollinators and to provide learners of all ages with opportunities to engage with topics in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Today, more than a dozen Freeport-McMoRan operations in North America have implemented pollinator conservation and education projects both on and off company property.
These programs have been recognized through the Wildlife Habitat Council’s (WHC) Conservation Certification program.
At Pfizer, we discover and develop novel vaccines that help protect people around the world from deadly viruses and bacteria. In 2018, we focused on rational vaccine design — understanding the structure of proteins enabled by high-tech tools like cryo-electron microscopy as a basis to design and produce those proteins for use in vaccines.

For Saira Sakalaš, learning she was selected as an Amgen Scholar last year was the beginning of a new chapter in her life. She says she will never forget the moment she got an email from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden offering her the fellowship.
Have you ever noticed that scientists historically are mostly white men? Do you think that this fact has skewed some scientific findings? Well, our guest today on Sea Change Radio has certainly noticed. This week, we speak to glaciologist M Jackson, who’s drawn attention from the right wing for the feminist perspective she applies to her research. We discuss her new book, "The Secret Lives of Glaciers," dive into her research, and examine how and why science has been influenced by centuries of white male dominance.
