In this roundtable, we invite participants to identify and discuss some of the barriers and challenges that women may face when teaching in the STEM fields. Through a process of self-reflection and a review of the current literature, participants will have the opportunity to be informed of some of the common issues encountered by women when teaching in STEM and to participate in the development of potential solutions to help navigate these challenges. A discussion of imposter syndrome, student-teacher relationships and classroom management will be paired with tips and techniques to help address these common concerns and to help optimize the teaching experience. Please note, registration for this session is open to women-identified people only.
