Diversity and inclusion resources
I firmly believe that STEM should be accessible to everyone. It’s important to acknowledge that many marginalized people face huge barriers when it comes to pursuing STEM due to systematic oppression and injustice. People are regularly discriminated against due to factors such as disability, neurotype, race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, native language, socioeconomic class, religious beliefs etc. To overcome this, we need to be intentionally inclusive to all.
On this page, I’ve gathered some resources on diversity in STEM as well as initiatives advocating for a variety of marginalized groups and mental health initiatives within STEM fields and academia in general. Do get in touch if you come across any resources or initiatives realting to inclusion in STEM that you think should be included on this page.
