Ep 28: Disabled People in STEM


Today’s episode features disabled people in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) with guests Liz Henry, Jennison Asuncion and Josh Miele. Liz, Jennison, and Josh share how they got into tech, their STEM educational experiences, and their recommendations on how the tech community can improve the recruitment and retention of disabled people.

This episode’s conversation comes from a panel I moderated at the headquarters of Pandora celebrating the the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on November 28, 2017. Thank you to Henry Lu of Pandora for hosting us!
