A recently-posed article on the STEM Diversity website highlights experiences and observations from students, faculty and staff within science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) departments on campus.
The effort to gather these perspectives was led by Kaitlin Morse BS’16 as part of an internship with Ahna Skop, associate professor of genetics, affiliate faculty member in the Department of Life Sciences Communication and co-chair of the CALS Equity and Diversity Committee.

The feedback they received—including a selection of personal responses—is described in an article on the STEM Diversity website, which is directed by Skop.
