The lack of inclusivity and accessibility for BIPOC and women in STEM drives them away from doing work in science. This is caused by the unwelcoming environments that predominantly white institutions create that do not allow diversity to thrive. It leaves the responsibility of sustaining inclusion to BIPOC and women when the problem is that white people do not welcome them into these spaces. The lack of diversity among the STEM field harms people of color and women and discourages them from entering and studying science, a developing field that is requesting more people to join because of the advancement of technology and research. Many institutions claim diversity by raking in numbers of minorities, however, they often leave when the spaces do not cater to them because the unwelcoming nature and lack of resources drives them away from pursuing a STEM career.
