Twitter has been booming with #blackinchem posts this week (including input from MC Hammer!) – and we love it.


Diversity is an issue in science. I’ve penned editorials discussing both the lack of Black representation amongst Nobel Prize winners and mistreatment of LGBT+ scientists in the past. Our Power List has also been lacking diversity in recent years. I’m on a mission to rectify that in 2020, with a List celebrating 10 leading minds from each major continent. Please do help us with this by nominating your peers from Africa, South America, Asia and Antarctica at the link “Around the World in 70 Analysts” below.

Matthew Hallam, Editor.
