We believe the voices of our community can create change and transform the STEM revolution through their stories and experiences. In our #leadfearlessly campaign, we explore what it means to lead fearlessly as a girl* pursuing her STEM dreams and a STEM advocate making the path better for the next generation of STEM leaders.
While working as a Program Coordinator at Techbridge Girls, Mia Shaw helped empower girls from low-income communities to pursue futures in STEM. She now shares how Techbridge Girls inspired her to pursue graduate school as she continues to lead fearlessly in shaping education, breaking down barriers, and promoting equity in STEM.
We’re pleased to spotlight Consuelo Crosby — the founder of Edifice Complex, in addition to being a public speaker and podcaster — for her fearless leadership as a volunteer with Techbridge Girls for nearly 10 years and her commitment as a mentor to young women throughout her career.
In this interview, Belinda shares how she leads fearlessly on her STEM career journey, reflects on how her identity contributes to her success in STEM, and offers her perspective on why it’s important to have BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) girls and gender-expansive youth represented in STEM.
