In recognition of his efforts to promote diversity, UNC Charlotte Chemistry Professor Daniel Rabinovich received an award from the American Chemistry Society’s Committee on Minority Affairs on Nov. 14. The award “recognizes individuals and/or institutions that have advanced diversity in the chemical sciences and significantly stimulated or fostered activities that promote inclusiveness within the region,” according to the society.
Rabinovich also mentors high school students through the American Chemical Society’s Project SEED, a summer program focused on under-represented minority students. Lizeth Hernandez, one of Rabinovich’s former Project SEED students and now a senior chemistry student at UNC Charlotte, worked in Rabinovich’s lab as a high school student. She credits Rabinovich’s guidance with helping her realize she wanted to pursue graduate school and make chemistry her career.
“Without open-mindedness, students are unlikely to participate and everyone loses with that,” Rabinovich said. “That’s why diversity is a way of promoting participation and integration, and that’s the key to success.” Click here for more information about Dr. Rabinovich's work.
