Women of Color in Science

A messaging campaign comprised of over 30 videos intended to share the stories, advice, and challenges of women of color in the science industry. This campaign rolled out in the Fall of 2016, targeting colleges and universities nationwide as well as high schools in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to encourage young girls to enter the STEM fields.

The National Institutes of Health has some amazing women supporting, doing research, and making discoveries in biomedical research. These women represent a multitude of cultures, ethnicities, abilities, and identities. The idea to honor women of color in science originated with the Committee for Women of Color in Biomedical Careers, a sub-committee of the working group for Women in Biomedical Careers at NIH. We’ve gathered their stories in hope that women and girls all over the world will be inspired, informed, encouraged, and empowered to pursue their own dream of scientific discovery.
