STEM is Beautiful: Women in Science
Beauty comes in many forms. It is physical, it is emotional, and it is inspiring. It is inspiration and big dreams personified.
In this ebook we celebrate OLAY’s tremendous commitment to mentoring and honor the women in science who have paved the path for future generations of women in STEM. We hope this ebook lights a spark to fuel your fire to find a mentor or become one yourself!
Women are behind some of the most groundbreaking discoveries in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), from everyday items like coffee filters to life-saving inventions like vaccines. However, while women fill almost 50 percent of the workforce, they only make up 29 percent of the people in STEM fields. This number represents the “STEM gap,” as more than half of girls count themselves out of STEM careers by the time they reach college due to lack of mentorship and role models and the belief that jobs in STEM are not ‘for them.’
OLAY is committed to #FaceTheSTEMGap by helping to double the number of women in STEM and triple the number of WOC in STEM by 2030. OLAY hopes to show girls that the future of STEM does look ‘like them,’ and that success is achievable, because when girls can see it, they can believe it.
