Women Chemists of Color
WCC programming now includes the ACS Women Chemists of Color, which aims to broaden awareness of challenges for women of color found at the intersection of gender and ethnicity; to gather more data about women chemists of color; and to provide a forum for building a community and highlighting women chemists of color achievements across the chemical enterprise.
The WCC Women Chemists of Color (WCoC) have hosted several networking events at ACS national meetings and virtual networking webinars in collaboration with National Chemistry Week. If you would like to have more information about WCoC or would like to share information on potential speakers for future programming, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Electrical Engineering Careers for Women and People of Color
According to the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), women only make up 13% of all engineers. This statistic doesn’t include race or cultural background, though the National Society of Engineers reports that people of color are even more underrepresented among the engineering workforce. This can make it daunting for women and people of color, particularly women of color, to follow through with the program. Here are some of the topics our article covers:
- Types of Electrical Engineering
- Career Opportunities for Electrical Engineers
- Concerns for Women and Marginalized Groups
- Scholarships and Grants
- Professional Organizations
