Articles on diversity, equity, and inclusion:
In the ISEE PDP, social justice for groups that are marginalized in STEM was first addressed in the “diversity and equity” strand; later we renamed that part of our work the “equity and inclusion” theme. This section features two articles on these issues, following the previous article on DEI professional development, and leading into the first article of the next section on internships.
- Christine O'Donnell's contribution compares the equity and inclusion focus areas from ISEE’s PDP with the well-known culturally responsive and culturally relevant frameworks from the K–12 context.
- An article led by Nicholas Santiago details how a suite of science workshops for college transfer students was designed with a focus on promoting the learners’ science identities, in an effort to support students who may have backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM fields.
