Please join us in highlighting and celebrating the innovative STEM success of black professionals, Oberlin alumni, and current Oberlin students during Black History Month at Oberlin.
STEM in Color is a two-day summit that involves professionals and graduate students presenting their academic experiences, successes, and navigation methods through fields that are severely nonrepresentative of POC individuals.
The two-day event will feature a lecture series, discussion panels, student research talks, and a resource fair with campus departments.
