New online network emphasizes diversity, supports STEM

UW-Madison has launched a new online resource for students, faculty and staff in STEM fields.

The STEM Diversity Network was created by associate professor of genetics Ahna Skop and UW-Madison interns Olushola Kemi Olukoga of Cottage Grove, Minn., and Kaitlin Morse of Mount Horeb.

“The goal is to create a campus community around STEM and compile campus resources available to underrepresented students, faculty and staff in a one-stop shop place,” Skop said.

The network was created to promote “recruitment, retention and success” of university members in STEM. It features a list of mentors who can provide professional development assistance to students, but also to faculty and advisors looking to help others connect.
