Welcome to the last week of our Pride Summer Special!! This week on the show, we welcomed MFQC newcomer Kareesa Kron (they/them) as our guest host! Kareesa chatted with Nancy Williams (she/her), a Chemistry Professor at the Keck Science Department at Claremont McKenna, Scripps, and Pitzer Colleges. They discussed Nancy’s path through academia and her process of coming out as a trans woman after becoming a tenured faculty member at the Claremont Colleges. She explores her increasing involvement in DEI committees as the Claremont Colleges evolve to be more diverse and accepting to queer students. She also discusses her active involvement in deep canvassing through the LA LGBT Center and the Trans Chorus of LA and how she has built community in these spaces.

This episode is benefitting the LA LGBT Center (chosen by our guest host, Kareesa) and the GoFundMe fundraiser is LIVE (https://gofund.me/726c9923) and will close 9/10. To connect with Nancy you can follow her on Twitter @NancySBWilliams (and us @MFQCPod). We'll see y'all next time and remember that Black Lives Matter today and everyday.
