STEMing from the Black Diaspora is a chance to engage with recruiters at The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and network.

In celebration of Black History month, NSBE Boston Professionals and Shades@Broad are hosting a panel discussion, STEMing from the black diaspora. This event is a chance for professionals to learn and engage with The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, recruiters, as well as provide an opportunity for networking. STEMing from the black diaspora features a panel discussion that explores the feasibility of building black talent, leadership and presence in the form of black-centered innovation hubs in the diaspora.

Our goal is to initiate a series of open discussions that critically examine:

  1. Science and technology talent and resources in black communities
  2. Feasibility of leveraging this pool of talent in different STEM fields to build black-led trans-disciplinary innovation hubs that tackle innovation issues relevant to black communities.
