Inspired by the film and book Hidden Figures, The Hidden Figures of Dallas: Top Women of Color in STEM will recognize women in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex who have made advancements in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in their workplaces and/or the community.
On the evening of Saturday, March 25, 2017, we will host an event to honor the women selected as finalists and raise scholarship funds to provide to deserving graduating high school seniors and college students with ties to the DFW community who have declared a major in a STEM discipline. Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson is our keynote speaker and the honorary chair of The Hidden Figures of Dallas: Top Women of Color in STEM selection committee. We hope to garner effective partnerships and engage the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex in our STEM education initiatives.
