NGCP Webinar: The Importance of a Growth Mindset: Action Steps for Educators
September 21, 2016; 12:00-1:00 PM Central (1:00-2:00 PM Eastern)
Having a growth mindset can lead to big changes in our educational system. Access to education for everyone depends on the shift from a fixed to a growth mindset. In this conversation, we will discuss the effects that micromessages can have on underrepresented youth mindset and talk about steps we can take to be more inclusive in STEM education and careers. We will further discuss key issues and barriers that affect underrepresented youths’ access to and persistence in STEM. We will continue to examine barriers and discuss the importance of a growth mindset.
