Dr. Jedidah Isler on bringing more women of color into STEM

Clip: 01/04/2019 | 3m 37s

Dr. Jedidah Isler has an unusual job: she studies supermassive black holes in space (they're called blazars). She’s also one of the few black women in astrophysics and is trying to change that. Dr. Isler, Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Dartmouth College, shares her brief but spectacular take on why inclusivity is so important in science, technology, engineering and math.
