Disabled In STEM

Disabled in STEM, an online community and mentorship program, wants to make one thing clear: "you belong in STEM." The platform creates "a safe space for those with disabilities or chronic illness and for those who are neurodiverse to seek advice from each other and share resources to help each other succeed." Alyssa, a biomedical graduate student, launched the site after following the #DisabledInSTEM content on Twitter and noticing a need for increased representation. To fulfill the goal of making sure people can see themselves in STEM careers, the blog highlights members of the community from various STEM disciplines. These biography-styled posts discuss academic journeys, navigating ableism, and connecting with resources, among many other topics. Individuals interested in being interviewed can fill out the form linked at the top of the Blog page. The platform also facilitates more formal mentorship opportunities; readers should check back soon for application information for the next round of mentors and mentees. Plus, stay up-to-date by following @disabledinstem (Instagram) and @DisabledStem (Twitter).
