Breaking Barriers in Science, Research, and STEM, with Gail Stonebarger
Last quarter at Oregon Health and Science University, graduate student Gail Stonebarger taught a section of an undergraduate class focused on the neuroscience of oppression and privilege.
For this week on Footnotes, we wanted to talk with Gail about that class, as well as a larger issue of representation in science, research, and STEM-related fields. We touch on the hierarchal structure of research, the lack of mental health support for underrepresented communities within STEM fields, and what we can do to change that.
