We’re not now nor ever will be as cool as #PattiSmith or Robert Mapplethorpe, but sometimes it feels like we’re still #JustKids.
My favorite #natural-color #lipgloss at the moment. #clinique’s #blackhoney will always be my favorite, but #bobbibrown makes #pinks that don’t look like ashy death on brown skin, so I love her. This is #sheer. #nofilter
Reading #neilgaiman while listening to Hildegard von Bingen medieval chant. Makes waiting for a working-very-late spouse feel like a #mystical experience.
We love @calshakes! #outdoor #theater #latergram #bayarea

Meet Jedidah Isler

She is the first black woman to earn a PhD in astronomy from Yale University.

As much as she loves astrophysics, Isler is very aware of the barriers that still remain for young women of color going into science. “It’s unfortunately an as-yet-unresolved part of the experience,” she says. She works to lower those barriers, and also to improve the atmosphere for women of color once they become scientists, noting that “they often face unique barriers as a result of their position at the intersection of race and gender, not to mention class, socioeconomic status and potentially a number of other identities.”

While Isler recounts instances of overt racial and gender discrimination that are jaw-dropping, she says more subtle things happen more often. Isler works with the American Astronomical Society’s commission on the status of minorities in astronomy.

She also believes that while things will improve as more women of color enter the sciences, institutions must lead the way toward creating positive environments for diverse student populations. That is why she is active in directly engaging young women of color: for example participating in a career exploration panel on behalf of the Women’s Commission out of the City of Syracuse Mayor’s Office, meeting with high-achieving middle-school girls. She is also on the board of trustees at the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST).

“Whether I like it or not, I’m one of only a few women of color in this position,” she says. “Addressing these larger issues of access to education and career exploration are just as important as the astrophysical work that I do.”
