Negotiating the Path: The NCSSSMST Pre-Conference Symposium--A Milestone on Our Journey
Mason, Letita
NCSSSMST Journal, v15 n2 p12-13 Spr 2010
The 2010 NCSSSMST Pre-Conference Symposium in Nashville, "Diversity: Negotiating the Path," was the culmination of initiatives begun two years ago by the Diversity Committee of the NCSSSMST Board. Inspired by the ground-breaking campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, members recognized within each candidate a symbolic example of what they ultimately hope to achieve: a nation that is strengthened and globally competitive because they are closing the achievement gap that disproportionately impacts women and minority youth. The focus of the Symposium was on ensuring that Consortium members remain at the forefront of increasing diversity in STEM fields. This article, which is the third installment of "Negotiating the Path," presents a brief summary of the committee members' work in relation to their goal of increasing diversity in STEM fields.
