TRSA is proud to be a partner of The unCommission whose goal is to uplift the stories of communities who have been traditionally excluded from STEM. TRSA is hosting a Storyteller Virtual Roundtable at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thurs., Sept. 23 to gather 15 stories from our community using a focus group setting. Based on the unCommission research to understand who is underserved in STEM, we have made the following communities the focus of storytelling:
- Black, Latinx, Native American students
- Other communities excluded from STEM, including White and Asian youth in high-poverty and rural schools
- Students with disabilities
- Students who identify as LGBTQ+
- Female students
All participants must be 13-29 years of age. All conversations will be recorded to upload to the secure UnCommission Storyteller platform.
