Poster Presentations (Day 3)
Native Hawaiians in STEM Living at The Intersection of Their Cultural and Professional Identities
This poster explores research that was conducted with ten (10) individuals of Native Hawaiian ancestry who, at the time of the project, were pursuing STEM-related degrees, employed in a STEM-related career, or were otherwise actively engaged in Hawai‘i’s STEM community. The research explores themes that were gleaned through interviews and provides insight into the successes and challenges of balancing intersecting identities as a Native Hawaiian in STEM.
