Empowering students to make science-based decisions
requires acknowledgment and dialogue around the injustices marginalized
communities have endured within scientific fields.
1. Develop empathy through the exploration of historical events that have accumulated generational mistrust of STEM communities; 2. Create opportunities to acknowledge and validate personal experience even when it might contradict our personal experience or larger data sets; and 3. Explore the impact of the objectivity myth perpetuated within STEM educational spaces.
