While Black women continue to excel in politics, they are also gaining ground in the areas of science. The second annual March for Black Women in S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and math) hits Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, on Oct. 13. The march was designed to bring together the Vanderbilt and Nashville communities to raise awareness and disrupt gendered racism in STEM, reads the organization’s flyer. “We walk in solidarity to actively dismantle the structural oppression in the workforce and academia and celebrate the ways Black women resist, speak up and out, and embody agency.” Essence magazine recently listed 15 women who are making major moves in the STEM arena.
