Twelve Principles Trainees, PIs, Departments, and Faculties Can Use to Reduce Bias and Discrimination in STEM

There is an overwhelming amount of evidence demonstrating that people from marginalized groups, including women, racialized and Indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, immigrants, and LGBTQ+ individuals, continue to face substantial discrimination in STEM, manifested as both overt bias and unconscious bias. These biases result in discrimination against individuals in marginalized groups, and independent biases collectively contribute to a culture that systematically discriminates against people from marginalized groups. Representation from marginalized groups in postsecondary degrees in natural science and engineering has not substantially improved in over a decade. A set of 10 concrete principles are presented that trainees, principle investigators, departments, and faculties can use to enhance the participation and lived experiences of people in marginalized groups in STEM.

U of T researchers develop nanoparticle to detect early-stage Alzheimer’s

Research led by Professor Shirley Wu at the University of Toronto’s Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy has resulted in the development of a new nanoparticle that has potential to help diagnose and intervene in Alzheimer’s disease at an early stage. The study, published in Nano Today late last year, describes how the new nanoparticle enables MRI to image early changes in the brain before symptoms of the disease occur. “The pre-symptomatic stage of Alzheimer’s disease, when you don’t see any cognitive or functional changes, starts 15 to 20 years before a patient has symptoms, and it’s extremely important to detect and treat the disease at this stage, before it progresses,” says Taksim Ahmed, a PhD candidate in the Wu lab and one of the study authors. “Our new technology has that potential.”

Impostor syndrome is genuine threat to women’s workplace advancement

So here’s my dirty little secret: I’m an impostor. There, I said it. It only took me 20 years and lots of sleepless nights worrying about what other people might think. But now that it’s out in the open, the truth, I believe, will set me free. What I’m talking about – for those business associates and friends who might be a bit nervous at this point – is the much-discussed “impostor syndrome.” That’s the phenomenon whereby high-achieving individuals think they don’t belong – that they’re frauds and it’s only a matter of time before everybody figures them out.

Changing the culture for engineering employees

Although women successfully secure jobs in engineering and are very satisfied in their work, they face many challenges such as starting lower on the corporate ladder than men, a lack of mentoring and career development opportunities, sexual harassment, and pervasive gender stereotypes that lead women to being disrespected and undervalued by managers, co-workers, and/or clients. Thefollowing are insights from the 30 by 30 network on tactics for increasing diversity and women’s participation at various levels in an organization.

Six indomitable women: Success stories in STEM

As we face a multitude of complex challenges—from climate change to global health epidemics to rising inequality—the role of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) has become instrumental in our technology-driven world, where some of the fastest growing, lucrative occupations are in STEM fields. Many women in STEM face several challenges every day. Lack of motivation, confidence, family issues, implicit bias, and a general underrepresentation of women and girls in leadership positions and higher education remain systemic problems. However, participation of women in STEM occupations is essential, because diversity is a key factor in innovation and development. Commemorating the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (February 11), here are the inspiring stories of six women who are thriving in STEM fields.

“Queen of the Hurricanes”: U of T Engineering alumna featured in new Heritage Minute

ECE alumna Elsie MacGill (ElecE 2T7) was the first woman in Canada to receive a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and the world’s first female aeronautical engineer. In celebration of MacGill’s enduring legacy and contributions to the engineering profession, she has been immortalized in a Heritage Minute, released today by Historica Canada in conjunction with Women’s History Month. Historica Canada is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the awareness of Canadian history. It has produced more than 90 Heritage Minutes: bilingual 60-second short films that depict a significant person, event or story in Canadian history. First released in 1991, these videos have become a part of Canadian culture and are shown on television, in cinemas and online.
