BROADENING STEM PARTICIPATION THROUGH INTENTIONAL EXPOSURE, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND ENGAGED SUPPORT
Presented by: Dr. Pamela Leggett-Robinson, PhD, CAPM

Many of the educational STEM settings (K-12 and higher education) serve as arenas where both academic and social inequities (and injustices) can be produced and reproduced by privileging some identities while marginalizing others. Thus, conspiring to create the STEM opportunity gap by way of lack of STEM exposure, encouragement, and engaged support. To effectively broaden participation and decrease the opportunity gap for these groups, current STEM environments must intentionally create and foster a culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity — one that is open, welcoming, and nurturing to everyone. This seminar aims to build capacity for ways in which individuals and local sections can work together to broaden participation in STEM for marginalized groups through intentional exposure, encouragement, and engaged support.
