STEM IS ABOUT DISCOVERY, INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS, AND COMMUNICATION.

 

But in order to excel at any of these things, it must be deliberately inclusive to everyone.

 

Unfortunately STEM, like much of our world, does not operate on meritocracy due to systemic injustices that marginalize folks based on things like their skin colour, race, geography, gender identity and expression, sexual preference, and disability.

 

Below are resources that offer important insights to the extent of these marginalizations, as they relate to STEM and beyond. It is not an exhaustive list, and please reach out if you have suggestions for additional perspectives that should be added.
