STEM careers have historically been performed by and for populations that do not represent the complete spectrum of unique lived experiences. In recent years however, the STEM community has been experiencing a sort of renaissance for diversity, equity, and inclusion -- or DEI. Efforts to address inequities in who participates in STEM and in who benefits from its advancements are becoming common talking points, but the breadth of resources, new initiatives, and think pieces can make knowing how to participate in these efforts as a scientist daunting or confusing. To weigh in on the challenges, successes, and future of DEI in STEM, we invited a panel of trained scientists who have integrated DEI into their scientific careers in different ways: STPF fellow Trenell Mosley, Juliet Johnston, and Bailey Duhé.
