Serving New Year, Molecular Biology PhD, Maxine Shaw vibes 😍 #STEMBae (@kilanbishop ) ...

I remember working at a company as a PBX systems engineer and being told by my manager, “you’re a woman with children so you will never be able to do your job”. I was taken aback and couldn’t believe I was experiencing what I only read about in articles from other women in IT. 
It didn’t make sense, my work production was never a concern and I stayed up until 2am on cutover calls numerous times. Where was this coming from? So I began to stop questioning it and decided to build my own business and in those moments I wrote my book “Bella dear The Engineer”. This book was birthed out of my frustration of working in an environment with only men. I wanted to see more women, I wanted female managers in the decision making rooms.
.
I ended up finishing my book and leaving that company. HR apologized to me but I still couldn’t believe they allowed it to happen. .
I began to accept IT projects on my own terms as a contractor. I began to work hard on building my business @stemtogreatness and educating children on IT fundamentals. Speaking to girls on their importance in STEM fields, to make a change for girls behind them while also enjoying a career that can be financially beneficial. .
I don’t know when the environment will change but I do know that we are not who people tell us we are. We are what we believe and what we work toward becoming.
.
Stay Strong!

Today was my undergrad intern’s first day in the clean lab! Gabby is a chemistry major who dabbles in geochemical research on top of everything else she does, like dancing 😱🧐 She’s already an expert at chemically separating uranium and thorium! I had to get a selfie in now before she takes over the world.

WHO GETS TO BE A SCIENTIST?⠀ ⠀ @twophoton designed beautiful scientist nameplate necklaces that are now available in our store. But they're not just jewelry - they're powerful statements of belonging.⠀ ⠀ "Nameplate necklaces are announcements of identity, popularized by young women of color in American cities. Learn more about the culturally rich history of nameplate necklaces via the scholars Marcel Rosa-Salas and Isabel Flowers through their research and their movement of #DocumentingTheNameplate .⠀ ⠀ Our vision by creating this necklace is to give young women of color the same power of wearing their identity as a scientist around their neck, much like wearing their name as a symbol of growing into adulthood." -- Two Photon⠀ ⠀ We're proud to be carrying these necklaces.

🎶Humanities in technology and culture in research.  Users in design and training the teacher. Branding herself for conscious customizing. These are a few of Nancy’s favorite things. 🎶
In this episode, Nancy schools us on the importance of inclusive UX (user experience) design and adapting technology to have a conscience. It’s impossible to design for a population that you don’t seek to understand, and she has made this her brand.
