Unsung Heroes in STEM

A Model for Representation in Curricula

Each month the Biology Colloquium team shares an “Unsung Hero in STEM” with faculty to further representation and inclusion in STEM disciplines. While the focus is on STEM, the conversation can be interdisciplinary with respect to socioeconomic, political and/or historical perspectives.
