Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation

When: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Biosciences Research Building, Room 1101
Description: Drawing on narratives from hundreds of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous individuals, the speaker examines the experiences of underrepresented racially minoritized students and faculty members who have succeeded in STEM. Based on this extensive research, Ebony McGee advocates for structural and institutional changes to address racial discrimination, stereotyping, and hostile environments in an effort to make the field more inclusive. The lecture is based on McGee's book, of the same name, which was published in 2020.
