Gaining STEM Capital

About this event

Date and time

Mon, August 30, 2021

5:30 PM – 7:30 PM EDT

Future Black Female (FBF) and IDEASS Lab from Ontario Tech University (OTU) are collaborating on a knowledge synthesis of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) university programs. 

Gaining STEM Capital is a “round table” discussion os STEM students at a virtual pre-conference that is the culmination of months of uncovering the systemic factors that impact the success of BIPOC women who are underrepresented, under-resourced, and at risk for dropping out or transferring to non-STEM programs. The goal is to foster learning, inspiration and wonder; and to provoke conversations that advance the successes and representation of BIPOC women students in STEM.

The discussion will be around the following topics:

- Intersectionality

- Counterspace and Community

- Empowerment through Research

- STEM identity
