Over the past two days, ISAR joined #ShutDownSTEM #ShutDownAcademia #Strike4BlackLives, taking time to reflect on ways in which our Society could help eradicate anti-Black racism in academia and industry.  As members of the global scientific community, we recognize that like other Institutions, ISAR is also a component of a system that has been complicit in racism and must therefore now strive to right these wrongs and empower marginalized voices.  ISAR strongly believes that all voices, work, and opinions are equally important and ultimately the value of the contribution lies exclusively in the science.  In order to advance the best science, it must be free from racial bias.  ISAR commits to amplify black contributions to our scientific mission and will convene a committee to best determine how to operationalize that commitment.  We are truly grateful for the dedication and contributions of all scientists to the field and we acknowledge that not all contributions have been equally recognized in the past.
