Our mission is to serve society by making science open, inclusive, and accessible and transform society by fighting racism, patriarchy, and oppressive societal norms. To achieve our mission, we work to empower all to reach their full potential in science, to increase scientific literacy through public engagement, and to advocate for science and equality in society.

500WS is a nonprofit grassroots organization powered by locally organized pods around the world. Join the NYC pod to support our mission and each other.
