Humanizing STEM Series

Humanizing STEM

STEM professionals as humans – who we are, our personal journey, the experiences that influenced our paths – are often hidden and eclipsed by the science we have uncovered and the work that we do. In this webinar event, we interview two panelists and feature the scientist behind the science, the mathematician behind the theorems, and the engineer behind the innovation. We will explore how personal identities (ex. race, gender, disability, neurodiversity, socioeconomic status) intersect with career journeys and how it influences sense of belonging.

Nominate Speakers

Anyone who is affiliated with Western can be nominated, as long as their professional identity overlaps with STEM in some way. For example, we welcome nominations of science fiction authors, environmental engineers, anthropologists, neurobiologists, chemists, and so on!
