Diversity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is critical; it enables the design of inclusive technologies and innovations that benefit all. Creating equitable opportunities in STEM education for youth will ensure that all students have access to experiences that will help them make informed decisions about their career pathways. In this talk, Cole will share her insights and experiences, and the journey that has led her to York University
