Students Advocating for Increased Diversity (SAID) in STEM is a seminar series meant to educate the MIT community about the biases and stereotypes that create barriers for women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields.

Through group discussions, critical analysis of journal articles, and talks from successful women in science, our aim is to make students and faculty aware of the inequalities that exist in the workplace while also educating participants about biases and stereotypes directly impact behaviors and decrease opportunities for women and minorities to pursue STEM careers, especially positions of leadership.

Speaker: Dr. Kay Tye, Former Associate Professor Picower Institute for Learning and Memory and Current Professor at Salk Institute for Biological Sciences
