Dr. Tiara Moore Receives June Sea Hero Honor

-

Dr. Tiara Moore, founder and CEO of the nonprofit organization Black in Marine Science, has been honored as the June Sea Hero by Scuba Diving Magazine.

After tweeting about the lack of diversity among marine scientists, Moore, an environmental ecologist, founded blackinmarinescience.org. She told the magazine:

“I founded Black in Marine Science after the injustices of 2020 in the world infiltrated the STEM community. We started having conversations about the lack of diversity in marine science. I tweeted one day, ‘Where is everyone that is Black and in marine science?’ and so many people responded. For the first time, I wasn’t isolated or alone.”
