Changing the Narrative

What does it mean to Change the Narrative?

With so few women and women of color pursuing STEM degrees and remaining in STEM fields, it is becoming increasingly important to discuss ways to increase inclusivity and question our current academic structures and implicit biases of what a scientist is. Ayanna is passionate about changing the narrative on what a scientist is and ways in which students from underrepresented backgrounds can be retained in STEM fields and careers.

When we think of a scientist we think of someone who does not look like me. But I think that can and will change as we provide opportunities for students of color.
