This past April, Isaac Klimasmith, a 2017 Doris Duke Conservation Scholar at U of M, participated in the 2019 New Horizons in Conservation Conference in Chicago, IL, where he attended workshops and talks as well as presented his pilot study about gender diversity in STEM education. In a piece Isaac wrote for Coexist, the College of Environment at Wesleyan University’s online blog, Isaac says, “I decided to research gender diversity in STEM education because there is very little research about gender diversity in STEM beyond binary gender. I wanted to begin developing a way to asses gender diversity, analyze how gender identity influences the experience of students, and use the preliminary data I collected to explore potential avenues for increasing gender diversity in STEM. Presenting at New Horizons was an exciting opportunity to share my work, but also to get feedback on how to make this research stronger.” Click here to read Isaac’s full article for the Coexist blog.
