About

This website grew out of the STEM Gamechangers event held in September 2018 at the Alan Turing Institute. It supports one of the project ideas, hatched and developed over two days by Yolanda, Maire, Karel, Hannah, Alison and Alexia.

The team (minus Yolanda) working on the idea

We thought that a lot of the challenges faced by minorities in STEM could be ameliorated if we had a little more understanding and a little more kindness. The understanding we can build by sharing stories, and by disseminating evidence about interventions which can work to help people in science. The kindness? Well that’s going to take all of us.
