Some questions guiding our discussion:
** Ableism in STEM
How does ableism show up in STEM?
** Another STEM is possible
Have you had any good experiences, the kind of experience that acts as a model for what is possible? What set of conditions would make your work and your training accessible to you?
** Where there is oppression there is resistance
What strategies have you leaned on? What has been sustaining for you?
We hope to see you there!
