UMass geoscientists tackle inherent bias, featured in The Bearded Lady Project

Graduate students Serena Dameron, Raquel Bryant and Adriane Lam, with Dr. Kinuyo Kanamaru, have been featured in portraits by The Bearded Lady Project this past month.  Participants in the project aim to celebrate the critical contirbutions of women scientists to their fields, in addition to educating the public on the gender, race, and class-based inequalities and prejudices that exist in the sciences, with special emphasis on paleontology.
