Lunch & Learn: "Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation"

This is a past event.

In collaboration with the NSF INCLUDES Alliance: The STEM PUSH Network, Dr. Ebony McGee will discuss her book "Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation" which brings together more than ten years of research on high-achieving, underrepresented racially minoritized (URM) students and faculty in STEM fields. She will offer a deep appreciation of what it means to be a STEMer of color and academically successful in contexts where people of color are few and negative beliefs about our ability and motivation persist. She will explore questions such as these: How do some students manage to survive brutal academic climates, and what does it cost them? Why do schools continue to recruit URM people into disciplines whose climate regularly drives them away? How does excluding people of color from STEM disciplines limit innovation?

Tuesday, April 13 at 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
