Abstract

Despite many well-intentioned efforts, underrepresentation of minority groups persists in the academic fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Most of these programs have been too small to effect systemic change, though that is what we need to preserve the socioeconomic progress of the past several decades. We designed a new web-based tool to connect postdoctoral researchers and lecture organizers, enabling them to find each-other for talks, and, in the process, break barriers and level the playing field.
