Description

In this CIRTLCast Semiar series, examine how social and cultural contexts shape the experiences of undergraduate women in STEM. In each week of this series, we will discuss the unique challenges faced by women in their educational trajectories. Despite efforts to broaden participation in STEM over the last few decades, women remain underrepresented in these fields. Across the series, we will explore how equity-oriented, inclusive practices can transform teaching and learning in STEM. Learn more
