There are many ways in which YOU can contribute to the effort to depict women in STEM as they really are and to counteract inaccurate stereotypes.
Join the conversation
Let us know some of your own experiences.
If you are you a woman in STEM, what challenges have you faced and what keeps you excited about STEM?
If you’re not a woman in STEM, think about a professional woman who has had a positive impact on your life, for example:
- A Mentor (someone with experience who helps you),
- An Educator (someone who has taught you either in the classroom or outside the classroom)
- A Scientist (a person who is studying or has expert knowledge of one or more of the sciences).
Who do you envision? What kind of impact did they have on you and how? Write a description of the experience, the person, or the event, and share it on one of our social media pages: facebook/UVACHARGE, @UVaCHARGE or #voicesandvisibilityuva
