To achieve in STEM disciplines requires ingenuity, grit and insight. This series celebrates scientific and mathematical achievements by people who have been historically underrepresented in STEM.

Times are changing. Today, half of U.S. undergraduates majoring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics are women. The majority of students in the University of Texas at Austin’s College of Natural Sciences are female. Most of our students identify with a community of color.

The posters and downloadable digital displays on this page highlight individuals, in and out of our Texas Science community, whom we consider world-changers for the impact they have made in their discipline and in society. Use these resources in your home, office or classroom.
