Diversity in STEM Event Highlights Resources

February 2, 2017
Attendees of Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Dialogue listen to a STEM presentation.
Attendees of Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Dialogue hear about efforts to enhance diversity in STEM at UW.

Ongoing efforts to strengthen and enhance diversity and inclusion in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) were highlighted Wednesday as part of the University of Wyoming’s Martin Luther King Jr. Days of Dialogue.
 
More than 50 people made their way into the Wyoming Union East Ballroom for the “Diversity in STEM” hourlong coffee conversation. Led by CEAS Senior Project Coordinator Teddi Hofmann, the event featured administrators, staff, faculty and students from disciplines in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
 
Hofmann unveiled a plan for a CEAS mentorship program to be under way in fall 2017. It will be aimed toward women in engineering and led by college alumni to add to innovation and help advance STEM fields. Beginning in September, the program will engage alumni to serve as mentors to support and provide guidance to female undergraduate and graduate students so that they can navigate the workplace and enhance their skill set to overcome personal and professional challenges.
 
Student organizations including the Society of Women Engineers, National Society of Black Engineers, Multicultural Association of Student Scientists and Women in Math, Science and Engineering also gave presentations to the attendees, and provided information about the leadership initiatives they have taken to better support one another and other individuals in the community.
 
 “I am so grateful to be a part of the STEM community and to have the opportunity to work alongside our students, faculty, and staff in creating programs that make for a stronger, more unified and diverse community,” Hofmann says. “The goal of this program was to highlight and honor some of the positive work being done on this campus in light of all the negative news in our society, and I look forward to continuing to be a part of this movement.”
