Center for Inclusive Education- Stony Brook University, NY: “The Risk and the Resistance in STEM”

May 2 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am

“To be Black or Brown and graduate in STEM is an act of racial justice.”

I say this almost unconditionally because Black and Brown STEMmers overwhelmingly want to use their skills towards fighting for racial justice.”

– Dr. Ebony McGee

On Thursday, May 2nd at 10:00 am EST, The Center for Inclusive Education at Stony Brook University is excited to announce that renowned author of Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation, Dr. Ebony Omotola McGee, will join us in person (Zoom option available) for an open conversation on the intricate landscape of the STEM ecosystem, scrutinizing the prevailing risks associated with its current state and demographics. Dr. McGee’s keynote will outline the consequential impact of these risks on individuals and communities within STEM. Finally, we will step into the realm of resistance, exploring practical strategies for combatting these issues.

This transformative event promises to delve deep into the critical issues surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM.
