STEM2020 - Social inclusion in STEM: Schemes, myths and suggestions

Social inclusion is a term very rarely used in STEM. Academics put emphasis on the content and employability aspect of a course, and almost never they identify areas and ways a session can become more interactive and inclusive. As such, social inclusion in STEM can be very high. Especially in areas such as Computer Science, the laddish culture can be so visible that can put off not only female students but also LGBT, disabled ones etc. In literature there is no widely known term for social exclusion, but nevertheless we see it quite often in academia.
