Did you know that only 8% of under represented minorities are STEM professors at 4 year institutions? 

Well, I was excited to have a chance to make an impact and be a part of the APLU Includes Summit this week.  The summit was focused on STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) pathways and diversity in the professorate.

Believe it or not, my background is in Information Technology. Before I started on this artistic path, most of my working life had been around coding, testing, and applications. Yep… it’s true!

I was hired by The Value Web to join their team and provide graphic recording and facilitate a smooth process for attendees. Our team was all about service and “making things easy” for attendees with facilitation and high impact visuals. It was a great experience working side by side with a top notch team.  Team work makes the dream work!

Here are some pictures from the event. I can’t wait until next year, I really enjoyed the energy and ideas from the participants. Change is possible!
