Show them who you are - uninterrupted; Radical possibilities for fostering identity and community in STEM Education

Natalie S. King, PhD
NSF Distinguished Lecture Series: Alan T. Waterman Awardee

What if we bridged divides that exist among government, private, academic, community, and industry sectors – valuable parts of the STEM learning ecosystem – to foster a STEM identity and community for all?

In this lecture, Natalie S. King, Ph.D., shares her commitment to advancing Black girls in STEM education, explores the role of curricula and teacher diversity in promoting equity, and provides insights on how she establishes and maintains community-based programs through research-practice partnerships.

King’s research is grounded in storytelling to elevate the voices of those who have been silenced, misunderstood, or misrepresented. She argues that there is hope for a promising future to broaden perspectives of what it means to do STEM, who can participate in these disciplines, and who is acknowledged as contributors. On September 28, from 1 to 2 p.m. Eastern, Dr. King will share concealed narratives that reflect the experiences, histories, and cultural wealth of Black and Brown teachers, children, parents, and community members as they reclaim authorship of their stories and ownership of their identities. Click here to register.
