Promoting Equity in Science Education
Every individual connected to the Wade Institute has contributed to our STEM story! Through partnerships and collaborations, the Wade Institute has connected thousands of educators with over 100 nonprofits, museums, aquaria, nature centers, science centers, technology centers, cultural organizations, corporations, and more with the goal of advancing equitable science education for all learners. These educators then bring their new knowledge and resources to their classrooms to engage students in science learning experiences that may spark their interest in STEM. The Wade Institute, its collaborating partners, its presenters, and its educators become resources for one another to share teaching insights and lessons learned from practical implementation of inquiry-based investigations.
We are continually working to broaden representation of STEM experts in our programs, seeking partners, board and committee members, and staff who hold Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (DEAI) as essential values, and expanding our understanding of current DEAI best practices in order to connect educators with relevant resources that will enable them to engage all their students in equitable science learning. Board members enable us to enhance our programming by bringing their unique expertise to the Wade Institute. Please join us in welcoming Kathy Zagzebski, Obi Onochie, and Andrea Gwosdow to our Board of Directors!
