EDEFI mission is to investigate the institutional, technical, social, and cultural factors that affect decision-making, career choices, and career satisfaction for engineering and computing doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty and other employees, and entrepreneurs who have been marginalized by race and/or gender, with an unapologetic focus on Black folks in those spaces.
Black, Brown, Bruised tells the whole story. Most scholarship on STEM Access narrowly focuses on test performance, as if the result were without a cause. Dr, McGee’s brilliant narrative weaves together research on psychology, education, learning sciences, and science to warn us of the critical mistake STEM makes by reimaging an exclusionary space. This timely and visionary book takes one-of-a-kind exploration into the intersectional forces that impede the progress of STEM.
– Bryan A. Brown, Professor of teacher education, Stanford University
"McGee uses a phenomenological approach: her arguments pivot (better, come alive) by focusing on individuals’ lived experiences. Among these are racial microaggressions, for example, “looks of disbelief when URM students walk into an advanced math class” or having their comments ignored in group work." Nathan M Greenfield, University World News
