Last week, the women shared our take on being #BLACKandSTEM and Woman. And in #BLACKandSTEM and Woman news, Crazy @AuntLindsey was successful in raising funds for her show, The Fab Lab, surpassing her goal!
Today’s chat is about the men.
As a Black woman, I know that there are ways in which Black men contend with VERY different issues than Black women. As the mother of a little boy, my concerns, precautions, and (sometimes) terrors are rooted in what I know of what Black men encounter in this world. In STEM? I have been appalled at some of the stories I have heard and things I have witnessed happen to Black men. But today’s chat isn’t one in which MY voice needs to be heard.
For today’s #BLACKandSTEM chat, the Men have the space to share and be heard. To have their voices elevated and valued. Make sure you use the #BLACKandSTEM hashtag.
Like last week, let’s start with two questions and let the conversation go from there:
- What are your experiences being a #BLACKandSTEM man?
- What are needs of #BLACKandSTEM men that are most overlooked?
