The Vilcek Foundation has released “Think Like A Girl: A Coloring Book of Women Pioneers in STEM”.

This colouring book is free to download. It celebrates the scientific careers and contributions of 19 outstanding contemporary women scientists and physicians.

There is a brief biography for each scientist with an illustration by graphic artist Paula Kinsel. The line drawings represent each scientist and their work.

The book includes a handy resource list of 15 organisations whose work directly supports broadening gender equity and diversity in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

“Thanks to female STEM leaders throughout history … our world is rapidly changing,” writes computational biologist Pardis Sabeti in the book’s introduction. “Today, the world of STEM is just beginning to mirror the rich diversity present within our communities. We must continue to expand the table so that more creative minds can join us.”

“Visibility and recognition of women and minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics is vital if we are to foster greater equity for underrepresented groups in the next generation of scientific leaders,” says Mona Hanna-Attisha, recipient of the Vilcek-Gold Award for Humanism in Healthcare, and one of the 19 women featured in the book. “We hope the creative and accessible format of Think Like A Girl: A Coloring Book of Women Pioneers in STEM inspires young scientists to imagine and envision their own future successes.”
