Campus Teams Busting Biases about Women in STEM

Congratulations to the Tuscaloosa AAUW Branch! 

The University of Alabama’s CAP team is collaborating with the school’s AAUW student organization, their Women and Gender Resource Center, and the AAUW Tuscaloosa (AL) Branch to produce materials and host events to recognize local women for their contributions to STEM-related fields. To increase awareness of women in STEM at the University of Alabama and in the greater community, the initiative will engage with students through multiple media including video, print, and social media.

Their videos will highlight women who are doing STEM work that impacts society and their posters will feature women at work in STEM fields, with the intention of engaging both current and prospective students. The team will post these materials in high-traffic areas on campus and share them online with the hashtag #CapstoneWomeninSTEM. Additionally, the Delta Initiative team will host a discussion group with AAUW student affiliates and women in campus STEM organizations, as well as a reception and public screening of the completed videos during Women’s History Month in March.
