Digging into STEM Educator Diversity

Are you, or someone you know, working to decrease the diversity gap in STEM education? 

We know that students benefit from having diversity in the teacher workforce. However, it can be challenging to recruit and retain future STEM teachers from underrepresented groups.  

The 100Kin10 Diversifying the STEM Teacher Pipeline Project Team is curating information and resources about how current programs, organizations, and education institutions are directly engaged in the recruitment, preparation, and retention of pre-service teachers to diversify the STEM teacher workforce. The Project Team will utilize the data they collect to share ideas and practices that address the historically underrepresented groups in STEM teaching.
