Mia Ong, "Experiences of Intersectionality for Women of Color in STEM: Individual and Institutional Strategies for Persistence and Success"

Tuesday, April 04, 2017 12:00am - 12:00am

Women of color in the United States—women who are African American, Asian American, Latina, Native American, and mixed race/ethnicity—have long been considered valuable sources of talent to fill US workforce needs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). However, they are an understudied group, and they are severely underrepresented in most STEM disciplines in America. Dr. Ong will discuss her research on intersectionality for women of color, identifying common sources of isolation and microaggressions that contribute to their underrepresentation.

Jeff Morris Levich Institute and Dept of Chemical Engineering CUNY City College of New York EXPLORING COMPLEX COLLOIDAL DISPERSIONS BY NUMERICAL SIMULATION Suspensions, formed by dispersing solids in liquids, are found in applications such as cement and concrete, coatings, and ceramics. These materials display a wide range of behaviors. The specific behavior seen depends on the particle volume fraction f, the size and shape of particles, and the forces between particles.
