Black and Latinx Americans are underrepresented in STEM jobs. The root reasons are myriad: limited access to quality education, discrimination in recruitment and promotion practices, and disparities in STEM-based programming across youth communities to name a few.

Join Meghna Chakrabarti, host of WBUR's On Point, for a wide-ranging conversation with field experts on how to develop solutions to reverse these trends.
