July is Disability Pride Month, and we’re doing our best to support, amplify, and celebrate the disabled in STEM community. Check out the video below to see what we have in store in the coming days.
TEXT TRANSCRIPT OF THE VIDEO:
“Don’t let ableism tell you what you can and can’t do.”
“Being deaf in STEM can sometimes feel isolating and frustrating.”
“People assume I can’t do fieldwork because I use a wheelchair.”
We asked eight scientists what they wanted you to know about what it means to be disabled in STEM.
Check back Wednesday, July 22, 2020 for a day-long discussion [on Twitter] moderated by @WeRepSTEM and @DisabledSTEM.
### End of video text transcript
We’ll be posting first-hand, candid accounts from real scientists detailing their experiences in STEM on Twitter all day next Wednesday. Not on Twitter? Don’t worry. Everything will be posted here, at werepstem.com, at the end of the day.
