Routes to STEM seminar series

Recognizing that diversity is critical to maintaining a dynamic, innovative scientific community, AE Professor Kai James created this seminar series. Our lived experiences and the paths we’ve taken on our academic journeys inform the ways in which we approach scientific challenges.  By promoting inclusion and diversity we can leverage the richness of our unique experiences to foster a thriving and productive campus community.

Each seminar features a 30-minute TED-style talk designed to be accessible to a diverse audience with a wide range of scientific and non-scientific backgrounds. Each talk is followed by a question period and open discussion led by the speaker.

Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to attend.
