Title: Queer Students in STEM: Supporting, Transforming, Engaging, and Mentoring Underrepresented Students in Heteronormative Fields
Lead Presenter: Natalie Oliner
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 3:20 pm - 4:05 pm
Room: Semi-Live
Abstract: The demand for students pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) is ever-growing, yet the demographic composition of these fields have remained relatively stagnant. White men continue to dominate STEM fields, generating systemic, environmental, and psychological barriers for underrepresented identities. While scholars regularly contribute to literature on the experiences and identities of women and people of color in STEM, research on queer students in STEM is minimal. This session will review research on underrepresented experiences in STEM, noting similar and divergent identity-based trends. In addition to learning about ways queer students navigate their identities in heteronormative environments, advisors will also learn ways to reduce systemic barriers and discrimination to better support queer students in STEM.
