WISEST STEM Podcast

The WISEST STEM podcast is all about advancing the conversation around diversity and inclusion in science, engineering and technology. We talk to academics, industry professionals, graduate students, undergraduate students and high school students on a wide variety of topics revolving around equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in STEM such as allyship and mentorship! This podcast aims to engage junior high to high school-aged students.

Parents and teachers are invited to utilize this as a resource and opportunity to encourage their students to think about these topics and to dive deeper into the subject matter.
