This program is intended for educators of all levels.

The program is focused on supporting student instructors, faculty and staff who participate in STEM education programs within the Center for Science and Math Education. This program is also open to all educators and future educators (undergraduates, credential, MA candidates, doctoral students, faculty and staff) on campus who wish to learn and become involved in anti-racist STEM teaching. All students, faculty, staff and educators from the SF Bay Area are welcome to attend our plenary session with keynote speaker Dr. McGee.

The first 300 attendees will have the option of receiving a copy of Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation by Ebony Omotola McGee - and/or - We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom By Bettina L. Love

About Dr. Ebony Omotola McGee
Dr. McGee's work centers around the role of racialized biases in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) that influence high achieving historically marginalized students’ graduate and career trajectories, particularly their interest in college faculty positions. The role of resiliency, wellness and mental health issues for mathematically high-achieving African American high school and post-secondary students; and identity (racial, mathematics, ethnic) development in high-achieving historically marginalized STEM students of color.
