UW will celebrate the 15th annual MLK Days of Dialogue next week.

RSVP today to join the discussion about challenges faced by underrepresented groups in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics at the University of Wyoming.

The event, “A Troublesome Hypothesis: The Myth of Diversity in STEM,” is part of UW’s 15th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Days of Dialogue (MLK DOD), and will be Monday, Feb. 1 from noon-1:30 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Ballroom.

CEAS Dean Michael Pishko will provide opening remarks, followed by short video profiles that highlight “untold stories of unheard voices,” which is this year’s theme for MLK DOD. Attendees will then be invited to participate in a series of breakout discussions focused around challenges faced by underrepresented groups in STEM. The shared stories will be used to help develop an action plan and clear set of objectives to affect change at an institutional level.

Through this annual week of programming, UW celebrates the continuing impact of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life and ideals. The MLK DOD tradition is intended to expand institutional awareness about issues of diversity, to build a sense of community, and to celebrate diversity.
