Local media to use $5 million grant to showcase STEM women

Represented Collective, a Madison media company, is using a $5 million UW–Madison grant to facilitate anti-racism in higher education by producing its “Legendary” project, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. The interactive exhibit is displayed at nine Dane County libraries through April 9 and highlights women who made STEM history but did not receive the same recognition as their male counterparts. The exhibit features 41 profiles based on a 56-card collection deck of cards on sale at Represented Collective’s website. Women are disproportionately represented in the computing and engineering fields, as they constitute 25% and 15% of each industry.
