Community Conversations for Advancing Equity

Creating Inclusive Spaces and Building Confidence

Wednesday, December 16 from 11:30am-12:30pm Eastern

The students who participate in STEM programs today do not represent the diversity in our society due to entrenched systemic inequities that silence the ideas and voices of students from underrepresented groups while simultaneously amplifying those from majority groups. 

Over the coming months, we will host a series of community conversations around the six areas for action presented in our report Advancing Equity: Dynamic Strategies for Authentic Engagement in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. In each conversation, we will focus on and dig deep into each action area and discuss ways to address inequities in STEM innovation and entrepreneurship education.

In this second community conversation, we will discuss strategies and solutions for addressing barriers in two action areas: creating inclusive spaces and building confidence.
