Despite efforts to diversify the academic pipeline, persistence of underrepresented and minoritized African American, Latinx, and Native American/Pacific Islander students in STEM undergraduate & PhD programs continues to be a challenge. This talk will refocus our attention on the pivotal and often invisible roles that academic institutions, STEM disciplines, and faculty-communities play in contributing to inequitable student outcomes. Our discussion will render the invisible visible by examining institutional, STEM-discipline, and faculty-community biases inherent in academic and STEM cultures, practices, and policies.
