Stereotypes about who does STEM continue to be pervasive in current society. For girls, particularly girls of color, the cultural stereotypes of STEM disciplines as male dominated and white prevent them from seeing their current or possible future selves within these communities (Kang et al., 2019). How can adults and educators address these stereotypes and facilitate meaningful conversations with youth to break down STEM stereotypes, address biases, and build STEM identities?
The Addressing STEM Stereotypes and Biases: Facilitating Challenging Conversations with Youth webinar was hosted by NGCP on September 15, 2021. In this webinar recording, speakers share strategies and resources for addressing and discussing STEM stereotypes and bias with youth.
