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? 

Join NGCP as we dig into this topic and hear from various perspectives on their experiences engaging in challenging conversations. Speakers will also share strategies and resources for addressing and discussing STEM stereotypes and bias with youth.
