Community Conversations for Advancing Equity

Validating multiple pathways and developing a holistic organizational approach

Thursday, February 25 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm Eastern

Despite rapidly changing demographics within our increasingly diverse society, systemic racism and inequities in America remain entrenched and pernicious. This is especially a problem in STEM innovation and entrepreneurship programs, where, for too long, the voices and ideas of students from underrepresented groups (URGs) have been silenced in favor of those from majority groups.

We’re hosting 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 third community conversation, we will discuss strategies and solutions for addressing barriers in two action areas: validating multiple pathways to success and developing a holistic organization approach.
