Our mission is to change the narrative so that it genuinely represents and advances women and non-binary people in STEM. Our goal is to publish stories that illuminate the lived experiences of real people in STEM and the topics that matter to them.
Our vision is to make STEM more inclusive. With the belief that narratives shape reality, we amplify the voices that are challenging STEM to do better.
Sister’s founder, Jenna, was working as an editor for a science magazine when she noticed the homogeneity of the dominant voices in STEM. At the same time, she was getting fired up by what she was personally seeing and experiencing within the STEM industry — it was evident that many STEM spaces were not welcoming or even safe for all people, and change wasn’t happening fast enough. Jenna turned to independent media as a way to tell a different STEM story and push for real change.
Thanks to Sister’s incredible authors and supporters, we are learning and growing, pushing the boundaries of the conversation, and finding our place in the movement to change STEM for the better.
