Science needs both windows and mirrors. Historically, academia has served as a window into a single-sided story, filled with innovation at the expense of others. However, mirrors are necessary for equitable science. When we see ourselves reflected in the environments, curriculum, and stories told, we feel a sense of belonging and confidence.
