STEM Sisters

Stem Sisters is a home to a diverse group of female international students and female migrants committed to an intersectional approach for empowering women of Colour in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics fields.

Gender Bias is an heavy contributor to the issues women face in trying to secure a STEM job. Additionally, racial bias plays an equally trying role for people of colour in western communities. The difficulty is elevated with the combination of the two, which is why Women of Colour in Stem need more support.
