Top Engineering Videos – Sistas in STEM

engineering careers  Top Engineering Videos –  Sistas in STEM

Sistas in STEM exists to amplify the voices of women of colour in STEM and have a great Youtube channel and podcast meaning they get a place on both our top creators and podcast lists.

We don’t think there is any argument today that women of colour are not under-represented in Engineering – that is a fact. They have been the brains behind space launches and major discoveries, work as doctors, scientists, and engineers but are largely missing from our history books.

Sistas in STEM is helping fix that by showcasing some of the best role models for the next generation and remind those working in STEM that they are not alone.

Alongside the Youtube channel and podcast, they aim to educate peers on professional opportunities, career paths, scholarships, and STEM leaders who have paved the way. Connect the STEM community building bridges that lead to mentors, future business partners, advocates and friends. Empower women by sharing stories, and career advice to push one another toward our goals and well-rounded sense of self.
