“My STEM Stories” – More than a science communication webinar

EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSION
BY:

Through the “My STEM Stories” webinar, CWIC created a platform for persons from marginalized groups to share their story about working in STEM. CWIC provided science communication training in order to teach participants how to create a video telling their personal STEM story, and will share the content on a YouTube channel with a target audience of people who are interested in pursuing STEM. It will be a place for students (high school, undergraduate, etc.) to connect with Canadian graduate students through their video story, so that they would understand what a role in STEM is like, and see diverse people filling these positions.
