In the second of three events on women in STEM, we will hear from faculty and institutional leaders about programs and initiatives designed to foster belonging for undergraduate women in STEM.
Questions to consider include:
- How can programs be designed to foster belonging for women in STEM?
- How are partnerships formed among stakeholders (e.g., institutional leaders, departments, funding agencies, STEM departments, etc.)
- What are some of the affordances and constraints of institutional programs?
