Honoring Women in STEM


As March comes to a close, we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month by honoring the contributions of women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Earlier this month, the Smithsonian presented #IfThenSheCan — The Exhibit, a display of over 120 3-D printed statues that pay tribute to women who are innovating their industries. Although women make up half of the college-educated population, they only comprise 25% of the STEM community. The goal of the Smithsonian exhibit was to highlight the contributions of these women and show young girls that STEM careers are within their reach.

Although the exhibit ended on March 27, you can read more about it in this week’s Simply Good article. You can also access the IF/THEN® Collection, the world’s largest free digital library of images and videos that reflect the diversity of contemporary women and gender minorities in STEM.

In this week’s Simply Diversity, we ask “Have you ever been called out on your unconscious bias?” We take a real-life look at the best (and worst!) ways to respond when you find yourselves in this situation.

Catherine Mattice and I are discussing diversity recruiting in a LinkedIn Learning event TODAY, and we hope you will join us. Scroll down to What’s Happening to learn more about this event.

With appreciation,

What started as a post about a child being bullied at school turned into an unconscious bias lesson for the ages.

In Washington, D.C., 120 life-size, 3D-printed statues of female trailblazers were scattered across the Smithsonian Gardens, making it the “largest collection of statues of women ever assembled,” according to a release from the museum.
