CELEBRATING BLACK STEM EDUCATION RESEARCHERS
The purpose of this series is to celebrate and highlight the phenomenal work of Black STEM education researchers. STEM research educators perform research on the interplay of STEM with the larger elements of human society. This complex interface between STEM and the contexts in which it is embedded—racial, intellectual, economic, and more—define both the educational approaches taken and how various approaches are valued. Explorations in Diversifying Engineering Faculty Initiative was co-founded by Dr. Ebony O. McGee which explores the institutional, technical, social, and cultural factors that affect decision-making, career choices, and career satisfaction for engineering and computing doctoral students, candidates, postdoctoral researchers, faculty, entrepreneurs who have been marginalized based on race and/or gender, along with other forms of minoritization.
