How STEM can EMPOWER ALL to be fully human through equitable opportunities that embraces cultural responsiveness

Valencia Hicks-Harris,

Founder/Chief Executive Officer

“The classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility. In that field of possibility, we have the opportunity to labor for freedom, to demand of ourselves and our comrades, an openness of mind and heart that allows us to face reality even as we collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress. This is education as the practice of freedom.” ~ bell hooks

Harris seeks to diversify the teacher pipeline, push culturally sustaining pedagogy as standard teaching practices, increase the presence of students of color in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math), and create an equitable education for all students.
