Hidden No More: STEM Women of Color Panel

Historically, women of color have faced considerable challenges pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Join us on March 20, to hear from four women, who despite these challenges, have made significant contributions to their fields and are pushing society forward.

Join us for a panel discussion and learn what it is like for these women to be leaders in their respective fields as well as how we can help expand diversity in STEM education.

Panelists include:

  • Ann Vaughan Hammond and Peggy Vaughan, daughter and daughter-in- law of Dorothy Vaughan, who was Langley Research Center’s first African American manager;
  • Dr. Jamila Simpson, Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for the College of Sciences at N.C. State University;
  • Dr. Stephani Page, Molecular Physiologist at Duke Molecular Physiology Institute;
  • Crystal Harden, Director of Programs and Strategic Initiatives as well as Chief Diversity Officer; and
  • Dr. Rhea Miles, Associate Professor in Science Education at East Carolina University in the Department of Mathematics, Science and Instructional
