Black Girls Do STEM
Missouri S&T is pleased to welcome Cynthia Chapple as the inaugural speaker of this series. Cynthia is an innovative scientist, an advocate for Black girls and women, and a champion of equity. In keeping with this work, she is founder of Black Girls Do STEM an organization offering exploration of STEM career pathways through hands-on engaging curriculum in the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to middle school and high school Black girls to expose them to career pathways and empower them to become STEM professionals. Cynthia looks for more ways in which she can act as a conduit exposing young Black girls to STEM industries and a diversity, equity and inclusion voice within the STEM workforce space to create welcoming policies, practices and cultures for Black people and women to thrive.
The event will kick off at 6:00 pm with light refreshments and the presentation will begin at 7:00 pm.
