The ACS Senior Chemists Committee (SCC), in collaboration with ACS Webinars, hosted a webinar moderated by ACS President Luis Echegoyen on July 9. The topic was developing an action agenda to address systemic racism. The panelists discussed their ideas and experiences. A report of the webinar is being developed.
Participation was very broad with more than 300 attendees connecting virtually - many asked questions and shared thoughts for action.
