STEP Welcomes Lizbeth De La Cruz Santana!
""Anzaldúa states, "do work that matters, vale la pena," and pursuing my calling in life calls for just that, doing work that matters to me and for my community through resilience, perseverance and manifesting growth and opportunities through brave spaces."
-Lizbeth De La Cruz Santana
The STEP Zoom Webinar Series will be a discussion about diversity and resilience through academia and the workforce. We will bring industry leaders, individuals in academia, and activists to talk to the campus about what it is like being either a minority, marginalized group, or underrepresented individual.
