Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women face a number of challenges when pursuing studies or a career in STEMM, including biases related to race, underrepresentation and lack of role models.
Hidden STEMM Figures in Cambridge
CamAWISE, with support from the University of Cambridge Diversity Fund, will be running two FREE events in November to celebrate the contributions of BAME women in STEMM
On November 16th we will develop Wikipedia profiles for BAME women in STEMM, to recognize their achievements and scientific contributions. The session will include training in developing Wikipedia profiles and shared working to develop a set of Wikipedia live content. Workshop registration here.
On November 23rd we will get together to share our experience at the workshop and to discuss broader issues around challenges and solutions for driving further BAME representation in STEMM. Register here.
Join us to develop a collection of profiles that can serve as role models for BAME women in science and foster a discussion about potential solutions to bring further representation of BAME women in STEMM. Both events will start at 6pm and are free but require registration.
