Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are an oasis of cultural significance, both past and present, and are leading sources for black graduates. However, the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) are still lacking proper representation of minority groups, including women. Did you know women make up 52% of the workforce, but only 29% of STEM professionals? Join HBCU STEM Education Run in an event dedicated to educate, elevate, and empower HBCU women in STEM through scholarships and career resources.
Women in STEM Walkathon (WiSW) is month-long virtual walk/run that can be done anywhere you like! Participate alone, with a friend, or with a team to rack up as many miles in the month of October as possible. Our sponsors will match funds based on the miles accumulated. Participants also receive a thank you token from HBCU STEMER. Whether you are an HBCU alum/student, STEM graduate, or just passionate about education, this event is for you! Come join the virtual WiSW challenge to support the next generation of women STEM professionals.
