Transforming Trajectories for Women of Color in Technology

SRNL is proud to be a Founding Member of the National Academies of Science Action Collaborative on Transforming Trajectories for Women of Color in Technology. Launched in December 2023, the action collaborative is designed to improve pathways in tech education and participation in the tech workforce for women who identify as African American, Black, Hispanic, Latina, Native American, Asian American, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander. The action collaborative’s efforts are guided by the National Academies’ report Transforming Trajectories for Women of Color in Tech, which provides evidence-based findings and recommendations for increasing recruitment, retention, and advancement of women of color in tech fields. Visit the action collaborative’s website for more information.
