TAME acknowledges our responsibility to address systemic and structural racism. We affirm that #BlackLivesMatter. The racial injustices taking center stage right now that we are all witnessing, are reminding us that the work continues. Social justice is at the core of STEM equity.
TAME is here. Our organization’s work began with the opportunity to improve diversity in engineering and other STEM careers. In the past four decades, we have seen growth in access, inclusion, and investment in under-represented communities. There is still so much to be done.
This is a time of grieving. The pandemic has highlighted the need for creative minds to resolve the problems facing humanity. Recent events have highlighted the need for all of us to take action in unique ways: march, witness, learn, amplify, teach, mentor, fund, and champion.
In this moment, our responsibility to the students we serve requires us to look within our network and team and have courageous conversations to inform our work going forward. What can TAME better do to serve students who face barriers to a future in STEM?
The TAME Staff are committed to the ongoing dialogue and invite the TAME Family to share insight here: tame.org/survey
