Join Papermade and The Langston Joules as they embark on a mission to spawn a new wave of Black techies, scientists, engineers and medical professionals by increasing Black people’s interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) through exploring science from a Black perspective and bringing the diaspora’s STEM feats to the forefront.
The racial and ethnic workforce in most STEM fields must be diversified in order to meet the current and future challenges of our rapidly changing country. We have seen the negative implications of STEM’s lack of diversity through high maternal mortality rates among Black women due to doctors not taking their medical concerns seriously, racial bias in artificial intelligence, the lead water crisis in the Black cities of Flint, Michigan and Newark, New Jersey; and the environmental racism that is accelerating due to climate change to name a few.
