Diversity in STEM
Wednesday, December 1, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST
This workshop discusses the impact diversity has on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and the importance of academic success, cultural competence, and socio-political consciousness. This session provides an overview of how persons from a diverse background can obtain and maximize grants, social support, mentoring, and training to become independent leaders in STEM. Additional workshop topics include developing a research identity and funding portfolio.
