Title: Department Climate and Graduate Student Success: At the Intersection of Ethnicity and Gender in STEM
Lead Presenter: Dawn Loyola
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Room: Poster
Abstract: How can departments create a climate that promotes student success and a sense of belonging for students in STEM? We will explore the question through the lens of intersectionality, looking at differences in student experience based on gender and ethnicity. The discussion includes the topics of diversity, chilly climate, racism, and microaggressions. We will also discuss ways faculty and staff can foster a sense of belonging including effective mentoring and advising, micro-affirmations, and safe spaces. The session will report the results of research conducted at several campuses of a public, research-intensive university system. While the research looks specifically at women of color in STEM graduate programs, lessons learned can applied more broadly, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
