Diversity in Chemistry Initiative (DICI)

The mission of Diversity in Chemistry Initiative (DICI) is to amplify the voices, actions, and successes of under-represented minorities (URMs) in chemistry at Caltech and beyond. DICI includes all black and brown, LGBTQIA+, and disabled individuals as part of the under-represented community. DICI provides a safe space for URMs to share ideas and issues, hosts seminars and panels, and engages in outreach with the goal to increase inclusion and equity in science. DICI is open to both URMs and allies. DICI was founded in 2016 by two CCE graduate students, Trixia Buscagan and Javier Fajardo Jr., with the support of Agnes Tong and Prof. Doug Rees.
