30 Black American Women in STEM: The Past, Present, and Future

Date: February 10, 2023 By: Emily Makowski

According to the National Science Foundation, Black women represent only 1.8% of all science and engineering employees in the United States. We’re observing Black History Month at the Ragon Institute by fostering learning about existing disparities while celebrating and recognizing the contributions of Black people to scientific progress. Our interactive poster display, 30 Black American Women in STEM: The Past, Present, and Future, organized by the Ragon’s Culture Committee, features 30 posters with biographies and scannable QR codes.
