Diversity and Inclusion in STEM
Wednesday, July 31, 2019, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York
Diverse leaders and problem solvers are critical to fostering and accelerating creativity and innovation in STEM. But meaningful diversity will not be achieved unless we invest in efforts to make the STEM workforce more inclusive for woman and underrepresented populations.
To create a more inclusive STEM workforce, we must promote diversity at all stages of the STEM pipeline, and increase the number of people participating in scientific endeavors, both inside and outside of academia.
If we are to address the 21st century's most pressing challenges, we cannot afford a lack of diversity in the scientific workforce.
Join the Academy and Hudson River Park as we hear from a panel of diverse STEM experts who will talk about their work, the many opportunities available for students interested in exploring a STEM career, and the importance of supporting diversity in the STEM workforce.
This panel discussion is designed for high school and college students interested in STEM careers, but we encourage grad students and postdocs to attend as well in order to network with the younger students and provide them with additional opportunities to hear about STEM careers.
