Last month we featured a downloadable set of eight stunning and brilliantly inspiring STEM Role Models posters commissioned by Nevertheless podcast, and illustrated by women artists. Each poster celebrates a different woman innovator everyone should know, and all have gone wildly viral, blanketing walls in classrooms, labs, offices, and homes around the globe. Originally released in English, the posters are now available to download in seven additional languages as part of a special release for International Women’s Day.
Representational and educational, all eight of these inspiration-rich works of art can be downloaded in English, as well as in French, French Canadian, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese Brazilian, and Simplified Chinese. Nevertheless plans to “continue translating them into as many languages as possible throughout 2019.”
The STEM role models featured include: Dr. Hayat Sindi – Scientist and Innovator; Juliana Rotich – Technologist and Entrepreneur; Maria da Penha – Biopharmacist and Human Rights Defender; Tu Youyou – Pharmaceutical Chemist and Educator; Mae C. Jemison – Astronaut and Doctor; Cynthia Breazeal – Scientist and Roboticist; Gladys West – Mathematician; Rosalind Franklin – Scientist. The artists who beautifully illustrated theses remarkable women and their stories are Lidia Tomashevskaya, Thandiwe Tshabalala, Camila Rosa, Xu Hui, Karina Perez, Joana Neves, Geneva B, and Juliette Brocal.
Of the decision to offer translated versions of the STEM Role Models posters, Nevertheless told WYSK, “When we first discussed creating the posters we wanted to make sure we chose role models from all around the world. But if we want to inspire women and girls all around the world they need to be able to read them in their own language.”
