Teaching Racial Stereotypes Drive Students of Color Away From STEM

Racial Stereotypes Drive Students of Color Away From STEM

Dominique is a Black engineering doctoral student. Recently, she found herself in an awkward situation in the lounge of a hotel where she had been attending a science conference. A White man at Dominique’s table assumed a nearby Black woman was on the hotel cleaning staff. He asked the woman to clean their table. The woman did as she was asked. In the process, she informed him that not only was she a scientist attending the same conference he was, she was the keynote speaker.
