Presentation

Start Date

End Date

Description

This presentation will take an intricate look at the global and national value of Diversifying STEM in the United States of America. We will examine the racial inequities in the STEM education to career pathway, gain an understanding of why these inequities exist, reflect on how these inequities have been addressed and introduce a model to address these racial inequities. Several case studies focused on becoming a STEM agent of change in education will be shared, along with the Diversifying STEM Equity Model which connects several studies focused on factors that motivate Black and Latinx students to engage in STEM, as well as identifies and addresses issues related to the racial STEM divide; with the goal of informing diversifying the STEM education to career pathway.
