Abstract Title: Disrupting gender and sexuality cultures in STEM: Building new futures and possibilities
Abstract Type: Symposium Talk
Abstract: Decades of scholarship indicate that postsecondary STEM learning environments are exclusive to students with minoritized identities--including students of color and women. However, very little attention has been paid to how students with MIoSG (minoritized identities of sexuality and gender) experience and navigate STEM learning environments. This presentation will explore gender and sexuality cultures in STEM by drawing upon a recent study on college students in STEM fields who hold MIoSG. Attendees will have a chance to discuss their perceptions of the cultures within STEM fields, contribute to a dialogue based on findings from MIoSG student interviews, and leave with tangible, everyday actions for making STEM fields more queer/trans* inclusive.
