Dr. Ebony McGee will present on The Stress of SuccessMcGee, associate professor of diversity and STEM education at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, investigates what it means to be racially marginalized in the context of learning and achieving in STEM. In particular, she studies the racialized experiences and racial stereotypes affecting underrepresented groups of color. Her research also focuses on the effect of racialized experiences and bias on STEM education and career by exploring the costs of academic achievement through problematizing traditional ideologies of success.
