It's no secret that minorities and women are marginalized when it comes to professions involving science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This discrepancy was recently highlighted in the blockbuster film Hidden Figures, which inspired the title of this presentation. To empower underrepresented populations, Tashni Dubroy will discuss gender, socioeconomic, and racial disparities in STEM industries in "No More Hidden Figures: STEM Diversity in the 21st Century." The presentation is in conjunction with RACE: Are We So Different?, a current exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences that explores race and racism in the United States. Dubroy is the founder of the Brilliant and Beautiful Foundation (BBF), which supports women pursuing scientific research and enterprises. She recently became executive vice president and chief operating officer of Howard University after serving as the youngest (and third female) president of Shaw University. Karen Clark of Radio One Raleigh hosts the event.—Xernay Aniwar
