Keynote Presentation: Building Safe Spaces: The Importance of Inclusivity in STEM Education

George R. Brown Convention Center - General Assembly

As a child, Dr. Raven Baxter loved watching Black Meteorologist Al Roker talk about the weather on TODAY and dreamed of following in his footsteps. She later realized her calling wasn’t in meteorology, but in education as a Science Communicator, seeing that race representation in the media helped shape her view that STEM career opportunities were available to her. In her talk, Dr. Baxter will emphasize the importance of building safe spaces for dialogue and discourse within STEM educational communities to promote accurate representation and foster a future that reflects the rich diversity of our true environment.
