The Color of Science

Growing out of the clear need to promote and showcase the diversity within the scientific area, The Color of Science program highlights the superb contributions of underrepresented groups, including women and persons of color, to modern science and engineering and their impacts on our society regionally, nationally, and globally. Highlighting these remarkable men and women also demonstrates to the next generation the myriad of incredible opportunities for all populations in a variety of careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
