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. A range of perspectives and having as many voices at the table as possible will be crucial to solving the global issues before us.

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.

Panelists:

Tarika Barrett - CEO, Girls Who Code

Nigel Jacob - co-chair, Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics

Adrian Mims - founder and national director, The Calculus Project

Karl Reid - former executive director, National Society of Black Engineers

This event is made possible with support from Olin College of Engineering.
