  • Google.org Grant Will Support Spelman Project to Capture Critical Data on Women of Color in STEM

    Google org On Monday, Oct. 24, 2022, Spelman College announced a $5 million grant from Google.org, Google’s charitable arm, to the College’s Center of Excellence for Minority Women in STEM to support the development of a comprehensive data dashboard that will help shape the narrative of the impact of Black women leading, working and studying in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The dashboard will also scale to include the impact of women who are Indigenous and Latina. This is the largest single grant that Google.org has awarded to support a project focused on women of color in STEM.

    In addition to the grant, Google.org will provide a team of Google.org Fellows – Google engineers, product managers, UX researchers and designers – who will work with Spelman on a full time, pro bono basis to help build the data dashboard.

    "We are thankful for this generous contribution from Google.org, which will support our ability to continue Spelman’s long history of recognizing and nurturing the contributions of women of color in STEM," said Helene Gayle, M.D., MPH., president of Spelman College.

    "Black women continue to play pivotal roles in various scientific disciplines. Being able to effectively document those efforts will strengthen our ability to elevate and value the voices, research, and intersectional experiences of these women."
