Identity, Academia, and Community: Research and Implications for Broadening Participation in STEM: Friday, October 30, from 03:15 p.m to 04:45 p.m in Room Chesapeake 4.

Description: Social identity, or the intersection between race/ethnicity and gender identity, strongly influences women and underrepresented minority (URM) students’ interest and persistence in STEM.
