Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) have defined the 21st century, driving innovation, advancement, and professional opportunities at an unprecedented scale. Yet many of those opportunities are inequitably distributed across the country.  


Today, NSF’s Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Coordination Hub Director Andrea Venezia joins host Kori Hamilton Biagas to discuss the systems behind STEM and STEM education, and how initiatives like INCLUDES are working to improve them.  


Venezia shares her own personal and professional journeys and how she came to work with INCLUDES, a unique convergence of social science, equity-driven systems change, policy, and practice, placed within the STEM ecosystem. She also explores the challenges and opportunities that exist in a broad range of educational and professional settings, including K–-12 and higher education systems, incarcerated settings, labs, and in industry.  


Venezia and Biagas also discuss the late Honorable Eddie Bernice Johnson, after whom INCLUDES is named, and her enduring contributions to STEM.

They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
