Women working and studying in science, technology, enginering and mathematics are encouraged to post a photo of themselves on social media using the hashtags #STEMSelfie and #WomenInSTEM

STEM selfies highlight women working in STEM and challenge the stereotype of what a scientist, engineer and other STEM professionals looks like.  They also celebrate the massive contribution of women to STEM, breaking stereotypes, and raising awareness about the importance of creating an inclusive space in STEM for everyone.
