Broadening participation aims to strengthen the STEM fields and STEM literacy by engaging and building capacity in all people in STEM learning and professional training, particularly those from groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields. In this video, Odis Johnson, Leanne Ketterlin Geller, Cory Buxton, and Salvador Huitzilopochtli discuss the importance of giving underserved and underrepresented student populations opportunities in STEM and ways in which the field can make progress in this area.
