Title: Bringing Awareness to Systemic Barriers to Recruiting and Sustaining Future STEM Teachers of Color
Join us to discuss barriers to the recruitment and retention of future STEM educators of color as well as promising practices aimed at addressing these. Interactive talking points include examples of strategic recruitment and communication; culturally responsive training and mentorship; advancing self-efficacy around STEM identity; and partnerships across organizations. A panel of future and early-career STEM teachers of color will share their experiences in the teacher preparation pipeline to better inform this work. This presentation introduces the California Recruitment Group collaboration and its mission to address barriers to STEM teacher preparation pathways, particularly for future educators of color.
