Hello STEM Students and Faculty,
We invite you to join Women in STEM (WIS) for our next meeting TODAY at 310pm in the Food Lab (Hagfors 108). We will be learning about how to implement Dr. Tara Yosso’s Model of Community Cultural Wealth as we navigate higher education. “Cultural wealth is the reservoir of personal and community resources an individual may have beyond their income or accumulated financial wealth. Many examples derive from an individual’s experience navigating or resisting bias and inequities, including traits such as resilience, social justice orientation, and social networks.”
About WIS: WIS at Augsburg is open to all people who support women and other minority groups within STEM. Although women are graduating with science degrees in increasing numbers, their count diminishes by the time they reach the workforce and representation is even less at more senior levels. Some of the identified reasons for the prominent disparity in the STEM workforce include a variety of obstacles that women face at different stages of their lives and careers. Fixing some of these “broken rungs” in the “ladder to success” can contribute toward achieving gender parity. Augsburg’s WIS group is made of students and faculty with this goal to create community support regarding disparities in the STEM field. It supports and organizes activities that bridge professional, personal, and cultural enrichment such as hosting networking and career development events where students can find mentors, listening to “success” stories, and meeting with professionals. Learning about existing disparities and practices to tackle in STEM can help students talk about and address various successes and challenges in their educational endeavors and in future workplaces.
For more info or to ask any questions, please contact Dr. Moumita Dasgupta (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Branwen Jorenby (email@example.com).
Thank you, and we hope to see you there!
