Every individual, regardless of race, ethnicity, or country of origin deserves the opportunity to pursue an education or career in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) in a welcoming, supportive, and antiracist environment. Yet, despite considerable investments to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEMM organizations, substantial barriers continue to produce systematically inequitable opportunities and outcomes.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a committee and developed a newly released consensus report titled Advancing Antiracism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in STEMM Organizations: Beyond Broadening Participation, which synthesizes the existing body of research on antiracism, diversity, equity, and inclusion (ADEI) in STEMM organizations and provides guidance and a set of recommendations for stakeholders across the STEMM enterprise to build ADEI into existing systems. This upcoming event at the University of Michigan will provide an overview of the entire report as well as the set of recommendations within it. This event will be followed by a smaller discussion session of the report over lunch between the speaker and students.
