We were in Maker spaces in schools of Lousville, and kids learn by doing amazing projects. Even regarding drones, they start from easy steps. How cool is that) #ivlp #usinkz #womeninstem #hiddennomore

#HiddenNoMore #IVLP Day 5: This morning we were kindly welcomed by Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan who gave us some insight to what spurred the statedept to create the #HiddenNoMore program. We were then joined by a panel of women who hold top roles in various governmental organisations such as the Food and Drug Administration and cdcgov. These ladies shared their insights into the state of women in STEM and what their organisations are doing to advance women and diversity. In giving personal insights into their career journeys, there were numerous recounts of nay-sayers and implicit and institutional bias (eg. no female toilets in an entire engineering building). While it was gut-wrenching to hear, seeing how far we have come collectively in supporting women in STEM gives me hope for what the future holds. Next we got to hear about the various U.S. government programs aimed to promote STEM which set the scene nicely for our last activity at the National Academy of Science and facilitated by the Committee on Women in Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (Yes, there’s such a thing!). Our group discussion was lead by the incomparable Kay Lund, Director of Biomed Research Workforce Programs at the NIH and an honourary Melbournian. What a woman! With such a wealth of knowledge and experience, she would be intimidating beyond measure if it weren’t for her laid back and unassuming nature. My biggest revelation during the discussion was how we as women, tend to be very problem-oriented rather than solution-oriented. We often spend too much time and energy worrying about the problem and not enough in forming possible solutions, something I know I’m guilty of. To combat this issue of the leaking ‘women in STEM’ pipeline, we not only need to bring awareness to the multitude of issues we face as women in STEM, we also need to let the system know how it can help us. My first request, universal access to maternity leave 🙏

#HiddenNoMore #IVLP Day 4: Breakfast today was kindly provided by natgeo yumm! We then got to meet Susan Goldberg, Editor in Chief natgeo and a trailblazer for women in journalism. Going through Susan’s long and impressive career, the majority of her job titles could easily be preceded by “First female”. And while she wears those firsts as a badge of honour, like us, she looks forward to the day where there is not a first female anything because it’s an every day occurrence. We then were treated to a private screening of the movie which inspired this incredible program, hiddenfiguresmovie. Regardless of how many times I’ve seen it, the bathroom-break confrontation scene takes my breath away every time. We then had the pleasure of meeting Katy Croft Bell, a (wait for it) archeologist, geologist, oceanographer, engineer, and natgeo explorer. Her career path is also nothing short of amazing. A point Katy made which has since come up a few more times in our discussions is the importance of having male allies in our quest for equality. We can’t do this on our own, and having men in our support network to help us smash through those glass ceilings is just as important as having women. Last but not least we got a sneak peek at natgeo’s newest exhibition “Wild: Michael Nichols” which showcases spectacular images of wild life and wild places. Along with the images you also get behind the scenes recounts of how the images were taken, which I think can be just as, if not more, breathtaking than the images themselves.

Gravitational waves lead astronomers to neutron star gold, when astronomers confirmed the detection of the gravitational wave signal GW170817 that emanated from the site of a gamma-ray burst in a galaxy 130 million light-years away, they realized they were looking at an intense cosmic collision called a "kilonova”, are powerful explosions that unleash gamma-rays and have been long theorized to occur when neutron stars collide. . .

Soy una de las 48 mujeres seleccionadas para participar del programa #HiddenNoMore como parte del International Visitor Leadership Program #IVLP. Estaremos visitando 4 ciudades de Estados Unidos en tres semanas para conocer y analizar programas y políticas estatales y locales para promover la participación y desarrollo de mujeres, niñas y adolescentes en las Ciencias, Tecnología, Ingenierías y Matemáticas ( #STEM, por sus siglas en inglés). Una excelente oportunidad para compartir la experiencia de Enredadas, por el arte y la tecnología, crear alianzas y fortalecer nuestro trabajo.

When you facilitate an #IVLP group, you add an extra level of hospitality to the group's experience. You also meet fascinating people from abroad and from right here at home. This week, I facilitated for #hiddennomore and, WOW, was it ever fabulous! I spent time with eight women in science who are doing incredible work and I saw some great things happening in northwest Florida. These photos are from our school visit. Thank you, West Florida High School of Advanced Technology, for sharing your program. . . #womeninstem #womeninscience #internationalexchange #dialogue #buildingbridges #comparingnotes #conversations #biomedclass #communicationclass #technology #computers #engineering #marinebiology #highschool #florida #pensacola #escambia #schoolvisit #wfhs #hiddenfigures #inspiration exchangeourworld iieglobal wfhsstudentinfo kimjenkins2003

Something like 20 STEAM degrees held by this group of brilliant, passionate, joyful, funny, and hardworking women 🇮🇹🇮🇱🇻🇳🇹🇼🇺🇸🇰🇿🇦🇷🇳🇬 brought together by a program inspired by a Hollywood movie, of all things. Our meeting of the minds happened because embassies across our world requested screenings of hiddenfiguresmovie. In August of 2016 I claimed on Facebook that this movie would change everything and one year later I shared a story about a first-of-it's-kind educational exchange program for women launched by the US State Dept to prove my point. I never dreamed I would have a chance to be a part of this exchange, but there we were on a cool October day in Kentucky sharing our resources, ideas, experiences and assessments. We were not there to trade praise for accomplishments but to get dirty and gather as much information on what empowers girls and women to persist and succeed. No matter where we come from, that is what truly matters. #womeninSTEM #hiddennomore
