White House and National Science Foundation (NSF) leaders will join Annual Meeting attendees Monday, April 25, 8:30 to 9:30 am PT, for a fireside conversation on “Reframing STEM Education for Equity and the Role of Education Research.” This dynamic discussion will feature Alondra Nelson, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan.

The session will be co-moderated by AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine and Okhee Lee (AERA Council member and New York University). It will include an opportunity for live Q&A with attendees.

The virtual session will be web streamed live on the Annual Meeting online platform and simulcast on site in Ballroom 6AB at the San Diego Convention Center.

Nelson and Panchanathan will each offer opening remarks speaking to developing STEM talent, including broadening participation in STEM for minoritized populations; initiatives of the NSF’s Vision 2030 to engage the “missing millions” in STEM; the potential of partnerships in addressing inequalities in STEM education; the work of OSTP’s Equitable Data Working Group, and the role of research and evidence in fostering educational innovation and change.  

“We are thrilled to have these two leading federal science officials joining us at the Annual Meeting to discuss this critical issue,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “Promoting equity in STEM education is crucial to the nation’s future and at the forefront of a growing body of education research, making this session at the Annual Meeting especially timely and relevant.”
