Student persistence in STEM programs is linked to student sense of belonging and identification with their major or profession. Lack of professional identification and lack of belonging exacerbate departures of Black, Latinx, Native, and Female students from STEM programs, for whom exclusionary department cultures and biased policies have amplified impact. This workshop provides an overview of the science and craft of storytelling which has been developed with The Story Collider.
