Prof. Ebony McGee - Black, Brown, Bruised: How Racialized STEM Education Stifles Innovation

Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Redwood Auditorium
1395 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

Join us for our first African American Workshop and Lecture Series event of the academic year!

Prof. Ebony McGee is an associate professor of diversity and STEM education at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College. She investigates what it means to be racially marginalized while minoritized in the context of learning and achieving in STEM higher education and in the STEM professions. In particular, she studies the racialized experiences and racial stereotypes that adversely affect the education and career trajectories of underrepresented groups of color. This involves exploring the social, material, and health costs of academic achievement and problematizing traditional forms of success in higher education, with an unapologetic focus on Black folk in these places and spaces.
