Black women and belongingness: An interrogation of STEM education as a white, patriarchal space
- Event Location Online
This interactive research presentation from the Society for the Advancement of Biology Education Research (SABER) engages audience members with empirical data to deconstruct ideas of Black women’s belongingness in STEM education as a white, patriarchal space. Statistics from recent National Science Foundation reports of advanced degrees in mathematical sciences are used along with Black women’s narratives of experience in STEM majors as well as perceptions of instruction in introductory courses. Please come prepared for an engaging discourse and critical reflection to inform more equitable, socially conscious practices in STEM education. Featuring Luis Leyva, PhD and Nicole Joseph, PhD (Vanderbilt University).
