Abstract

Women and people of color remain underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce and academia. In this chapter, the authors focus on the experience of girls and students of color in urban STEM classrooms through the lens of microaggressions theory. Within this chapter, the authors define macroaggression and discuss the various types (e.g., microinsults, microinvalidations, microassaults). Consequences of microaggressions are discussed and strategies are presented to address microaggressions within the PreK-12 urban school setting.
