As we embark on the exciting journey of setting up Arcadia Science, we feel incredibly lucky to have a chance to rethink how our structures serve our science, rather than the other way around. Like many of you, we see that we are sitting at a unique moment in history when some of us have the time and resources (accelerated in part by a re-awakening during a pandemic) to step back and re-evaluate how things are done. There is no better time than now to partner with more corners of our society to do this. We are taking this opportunity seriously. In coming weeks, we will be posting blog entries here that provide insight into some of our thinking. We will be trying some new things, which as all scientists know, will involve mistakes and course-correction. This is how we get better.
We invite respectful dialogue as we challenge our own assumptions and biases.
