Intersectional Perspectives on Diversity and Inclusion in STEM
Thursday, Sept. 23 | 12-1 p.m. | ZOOM Only
Intersectional perspectives and approaches are critical for understanding the way in which issues of diversity and inclusion shape diverse student experiences and outcomes in higher education. In this presentation, I will discuss recent efforts to use an intersectional approach to understand disparities in STEM student outcomes at the University of Arizona and how our findings can be used to inform diversity and inclusion efforts.
