As a Latin woman who has had multiple opportunities to grow and succeed in STEM, I love to get involved in activities that increase the global accessibility of science. For example, I create content at Neuromatch Academy, a non-profit organization providing training in theoretical and computational neuroscience. And I give talks to motivate young Mexican women to pursue careers in science and technology.
Research at the Scalable Health Labs has exposed me to the how in slowly closing gaps in healthcare. This is vital because my life goal is to help develop medical technology and bridge the gap by making these technologies accessible to underserved communities,
Growing up I was always passionate about physics but was often disappointed that there weren’t many people who looked like me in the field. I knew I would become a professor of physics and a role model for other black students. The GEM Fellowship will help me give back to my community and inspire the next generation of black students to pursue careers in academia.
Women in Engineering Student Clubs
ECE has a few outlets for the women and nonbinary members of the Rice community to collaborate and share their perspectives, these groups host events and gatherings aimed at helping Rice women engineers find success in their career aspirations, provide community, mentoring, and cultural enrichment, as well as foster professional networking.
The George R. Brown School of Engineering at Rice University has launched a school-wide center devoted to current and new diversity and inclusion initiatives. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Outreach Center, housed within Academic Affairs, will develop evidence-based strategic initiatives to improve recruitment, retention and support for populations historically excluded from STEM.
As a collegiate (or college-based) chapter, the Rice University NSBE Chapter is dedicated to increasing the enrollment, retention, and overall success of Black and minority engineering students at Rice University. Rice NSBE focuses on providing its members with the academic, professional, and personal resources needed to ensure their success as emerging professional engineers.
SHPE at Rice aims to empower Rice Hispanic Engineers through professional, social, academic and outreach opportunities. Professionally it seeks to connect all its members with an internship, research, or post-graduation position. Socially and academically, it hopes to strengthen the sense of familia and create a strong support network within the group. In Outreach, it aims to impact and empower the surrounding young, underserved minority communities in their pursuit of education and learning.
