STEM Connect is a multi-sector event intended to provoke and stimulate reactions that allow us to rethink who or what “fits” into STEM. We will use several components of systems thinking including appreciation for new insights, flexible thinking, and multiple perspectives to reimagine a stronger, more integrated, inclusive and sustainable STEM ecosystem. STEM Connect will challenge your assumptions of STEM. Join us as we examine what we think about the STEM ecosystem through the Provocateur Panel where we will hear personal stories and innovative perspectives from community members. Together, we can disrupt the current state of STEM to create an inclusive culture that validates diverse experiences and careers in STEM.
