#POCinSTEM Podcasts

Whilst we’ve had the honour of highlighting the contribution of #WomeninSTEM in our Podcasts, we recognise that we can and should be doing more to reflect the rich diversity of those working in, exploring and celebrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. 

To help in that journey we wanted to share some of our favourite #PoCinSTEM podcasts. These are passionate, warm and engaging - please have a listen and share any of your own recommendations with us in the comments below too!
