STEM Sisters is committed to empowering and supporting women of colour in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields to achieve their full potential.
Our vision is to be a leader in creating a diverse and inclusive STEM community in which women of colour can thrive and excel. We aim to break down systemic barriers and promote equal access to opportunities in STEM fields, ultimately contributing to a more equitable and innovative society.
Empowering WOC in STEM
Our primary objective is empowering women of colour (WOC) in STEM. Our initiatives provide support, resources, and opportunities for WOC at all stages of their STEM careers. We aim to help WOC overcome the intersectional barriers of gender and racial bias in STEM and increase their participation in STEM education and careers.
We are more than just a set of initiatives – we are a community. Our impact also includes building a supportive network of WOC in STEM, fostering collaboration, and nurturing deeper connections. By creating a safe space for WOC in STEM to connect, learn, and grow, we aim to increase the visibility of WOC in STEM who are often overlooked and support them in further developing their leadership and professional goals.
Driving systemic change
Ultimately, our impact is about driving lasting systemic change in the STEM industry. We aim to contribute to a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable STEM industry by addressing the specific needs and challenges WOC faces in STEM. Our initiatives also aim to raise awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion in STEM, challenge biases, and breakthrough specific barriers that hold WOC back from progressing in their STEM journeys.
