Addressing STEM Stereotypes and Biases: Facilitating Challenging Conversations with Youth (National Girls Collaborative Project)
Stereotypes about who does STEM continue to be pervasive in current society. For girls, particularly girls of color, the cultural stereotypes of STEM disciplines as male dominated and white prevent them from seeing their current or possible future selves within these communities (Kang et al., 2019). Join NGCP as we dig into this topic and hear from various perspectives on their experiences engaging in challenging conversations. Speakers will also share strategies and resources for addressing and discussing STEM stereotypes and bias with youth.
