Elevating STEM Voices: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Panel

Join us in person or virtually for a special panel focused on elevating STEM voices.

With the confluence of social media and STEM, there are many ways for STEM professionals and students to share their experiences within the field. As we build a more equitable and inclusive STEM ecosystem, how do we collectively share stories that create positive change?

Join the New York Academy of Sciences and our River Project team as we hear from a panel of diverse STEM experts who will talk about their professional evolution and journey in science communication. Discover how they came to harness the power of their stories and experiences to develop effective, individualized communication strategies that work for them. Learn about opportunities available for students interested in pursuing STEM careers and how mentors and role models contribute to a thriving STEM ecosystem where diverse identities flourish.

This panel discussion is being held both in-person at the Pier 57 Seahorse Classroom and virtually and is designed to engage high school and college students interested in STEM careers, as well as graduate students, postdocs, and young professionals. Participants are encouraged to ask questions during the Q&A segment and join us in-person for a post-panel networking event.

During this event, you’ll hear from a panel of Scientists on the following topics:

  • How to share scientific discoveries and information in ways that resonate with diverse audiences
  • How to share your story in STEM and elevate other’s stories in STEM
  • The importance of cultivating a strong STEM identity
  • How to understand your personal values and leverage it to compliment your professional identity
  • What opportunities to look for to be successful in STEM
  • How to approach mentors when looking to navigate the STEM ecosystem
  • How to be an authentic communicator and innovator
