Abstract/Description

Kennedy Union 311

Percentages of women and underrepresented minorities within STEM faculty still lag behind the overall population percentages. This workshop will provide the opportunity to continue the conversations from last year’s LTC Forum, where we engaged in critical conversations related to patterns of implicit biases including: Prove-it-again, Tightrope, Maternal Wall, and Tug of War. After a brief overview of the implicit biases that impact diversity and inclusion, we will discuss challenges for STEM faculty and collectively develop strategies that can enhance inclusivity for Faculty in the STEM fields. These critical conversations will be held without repercussions and will help us to learn from each other with experiences facing similar barriers.

Goals for Attendees

To better understand the implicit biases, and how they can impact inclusivity and diversity amongst STEM Faculty. To develop strategies that can enhance inclusivity for STEM Faculty.
