    Stay connected through NOBCChE social media
    Hello everyone! I am Brittany Allison (Chemistry PhD grad student) and Chair of the Social Media Team. We are excited to say that the Social Media Division of NOBCChE, initiated last year, has been a huge success!! In line with NOBCChE's mission "to build an eminent cadre of people of color in science and technology," we use social media as a new opportunity to recruit and expand our network. Our goal is to be visible and connected to members via professional pages such as and LinkedIn, and more casual pages such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Our ultimate vision is that every member of NOBCChE is actively engaged in at least one aspect of social media, and browses the others. This year, we have expanded the Social Media team to bring you even more great posts.

    By maintaining social media pages, NOBCChE
    has the opportunity to bring together minority
    scientists like never before!

    From our team, you can look forward to posts such as #MotivationMondays, #MeetNOBCChE, #NOBCChE2015, #NOBCChEtbt, #ScienceHumor, as well as posts about mentoring, outreach, careers, minority trailblazers, and more! Another goal of the social media division is that members involved with one page are interested in browsing the other pages. For example, an image of our NOBCChE Facebook page posted on Instagram with the caption "Make sure you check us out and Like us on Facebook!"

    This way, we spark an interest for potentially new members as well as existing members to be connected as many ways as possible. By maintaining our social media pages, we have the amazing opportunity to bring together minority scientists as never before! We really hope that you take a few moments to check out all of our social media pages, and send any interesting articles/links/pictures revolving around NOBCChE interests to And if you are interested in being a part of the team, contact us on any of the platforms. We are looking forward to enhancing the Social Media Division of NOBCChE, and we hope you are too!

So what happens when the need to get ahead conflicts with the availability of funding?
