A Discussion on Institutional Racism in STEM
On September 30, 2021, CO-LSEN hosted a panel to discuss institutional racism in STEM, featuring local and national experts and policy makers. Institutionalized racism within STEM education, research, and culture has created and prolonged a system in which people of color are alienated and placed at significant disadvantages in obtaining degrees, training, and careers in these fields. the 2020 campaigns of #ShutDownSTEM and #NoTimeFor Silence have demanded attention from the STEM community. The CO-LSEN aims to advance these movements.
