Professional Cultures & Inequality in STEM, presented by Dr. Erin Cech, U-M LSA
Cultural norms get passed from one generation to the next - both the good...and the not-so-good. What is getting passed down in professional STEM culture?
University of Michigan Engineering is excited to welcome Prof. Erin Cech to our DEI lecture series for the month of March. Her lecture will be focused on three cultural ideologies at play in perpetuating disadvantages in professional STEM culture:
1. Schemas of scientific excellence
Drawing from several NSF-funded survey and interview-based studies, Prof. Cech explores how these three concepts create disadvantages for women, racial/ethnic minorities and LGBTQ persons.
