NEW YORK, NY (November 16, 2020) – Today, L'Oréal USA announced the recipients of its 2020 For Women in Science (FWIS) Fellowship. The annual program awards five female postdoctoral scientists grants of $60,000 each to advance their research. Now in its 17th year, the For Women in Science program has recognized 85 postdoctoral female scientists and contributed over $4 million to the advancement of critical research in fields as diverse as neurobiology, metabolic diseases, physics and material science, integrative biology, and biomedical engineering.

Un grupo de estudiantes del Recinto Universitario de Mayagüez (RUM), de la Universidad de Puerto Rico (UPR), fundó la primera organización en el país que agrupa a las mujeres que estudian la disciplina de la Física.

Con el nombre de Women in Physics Puerto Rico (WiP-PR), este colectivo está dedicado al empoderamiento de las féminas que se preparan académicamente y laboran en esta rama de la ciencia. Además, aspira a establecer un precedente para abrirle el camino a otras mujeres interesadas en entrar al campo, y, de esa forma, incrementar la diversidad y la inclusión del género en la ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas (STEM, por sus siglas en inglés).

It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the beginning of the third cycle of the Seeds of Success Program, which seeks to expose middle school girls to the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Last Saturday, August 15, 2020, 121 students in grades 7th through 9th, began their journey to become STEM Ambassadors with a virtual orientation seminar and a leadership workshop. Prior to the seminar, the girls received the program guides and STEM educational materials, such as the paper microscope, Foldscope, brochures and opportunities for students. These materials were donated by about 15 organizations and sent through the postal service.

These women are four of the 125 IF/THEN ambassadors selected by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Lyda Hill Philanthropies as outstanding women in STEM and role models.

The Future of STEM is Phenomenally Latina

Mónica Ivelisse Feliú-Mójer's picture

Latinas earn 4% of bachelor’s degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, also known as STEM disciplines, and hold only 2% of jobs in these sectors in the United States. This underrepresentation of Latinas in STEM limits their earning potential, their full participation in a fast-growing set of careers, and presents a troubling loss of talent and innovation.

From Girl Leaders to Women Leaders in Science

On February 11 the world celebrates International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This day, which recognizes the crucial role of women and girls in science and technology, was established in 2016 through a resolution of the United Nations General Assembly. Some of the most relevant points of this resolution, in my opinion, are the promotion of (1) full and equal participation for women and girls, both in their education, as well as their work environment and (2) full participation by women and girls in decision making in science.

Letter to my younger self: What do you do when you don’t know what to do?

Antonieta L Salguero Rivera's picture

One of the most challenging decisions to make for most young adults is choosing a career path to follow. In the United States, about one-third of students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programs changed majors (National Center for Education Statistics), but the challenge doesn’t stop there as it is even more difficult to figure out what to do after obtaining that degree. Ten years ago, when I was living in Ecuador and trying to figure out what to do with my life, I would have never imagined that I was going to decide to pursue a doctorate degree in Chemical Biology.
