Our Women in STEM initiative uses art to advocate for greater gender and racial equality in STEM fields. We believe in the power of artwork to influence and educate the community and hope to use art to give recognition to the many revolutionary female scientists and mathematicians of history.
More information about us, our projects, and the scientists and mathematicians featured in our projects can be found below and on other pages.
Our first mural depicts 10 revolutionary women and women-of-color that contributed greatly to their respective STEM fields. Some of the scientists and mathematicians included feature Chien-Shiung Wu, Gladys West, and Janaki Ammal; more information on them and the other scientists features can be found on the biographies page! The is installed at the Petaluma Library in Petaluma, California. For more info or pictures about the mural and our process, look below!
We are so thankful for David Ward from the City of Petaluma, Diana Spaulding, Joe Cochrane, and Karen Ballerini from the Petaluma Library, and the volunteers at Rebuilding Together that helped coordinate and complete the installation of the mural. We've been working towards this goal for the past one and a half year and can't believe we finally made it to this point. However, our journey is far from over; we hope the mural will continue to educate the community about the importance of women in STEM as the world moves towards gender equality in science.
