The People of Color in Astronomy Listing You Should Know About
Lia Corrales University of Michigan
Did you know that the AAS Committee on the Status of Minorities in Astronomy (CSMA) maintains a People of Color in Astronomy Listing? Since 2018, CSMA has been sponsoring a compilation of demographic information for all People of Color in the astronomical sciences, and nearly 100 colleagues have added their information to the roster.
To increase the visibility of astronomers of color in the field, we strongly encourage astronomers who identify as persons of color to add themselves to the list.
We hope the roster can serve as a valuable resource for finding colloquium speakers, job candidates, and peer mentors. With the deadline to submit nominations for AAS prizes, awards, and honors for 2021 less than a week away, we encourage AAS members to use this listing for nominating people of color by Tuesday, 14 July 2020.
