Meet Our Founder
My purpose of creating Black Girls Do STEM is to change the face of STEM industry. As both black and a women I have felt cultural isolated in STEM workplaces. I can say I often walk into spaces as either the only black women or only minority. I see very few people who look like me leading within STEM industry. I am left to ask myself why? Then as I reflect on my college years and upbringing I am faced with the harsh reality that lack of exposure and encouragement may be the reasoning for my often solo appearance in STEM industry.
By launching Black Girls Do STEM, I strive to provide middle school aged black girls opportunity to learn, create, and build confidence in their abilities to become STEM professionals. In doing this we will be closing the gap between black woman scientist and engineers and the rest of the STEM world. Opening black girls eyes to the possibilities in STEM while they are still curious and excited to learn new things, giving black girls the opportunity to be on the forefront of the next scientific discovery. I believe black girls can, black girls will; do STEM!
