Women in Earth & Space Science
Each year, March is designated as National Women's History Month
to ensure the history of American women will be recognized and
celebrated in schools, workplaces, and communities throughout the country.
The 2014 theme is "Celebrating Women of Character, Courage, and Commitment".
This week the NGCP celebrates Women in Earth & Space Science.
Women@NASA was created in response to theExecutive Order, signed March 11, 2009, establishing the White House Council on Women and Girls. The Council aims to provide a coordinated federal response to issues that have a distinct impact on women and girls. The website includes a collection of videos and essays from women across the agency who contribute to NASA's mission in different ways. Their stories illuminate the vibrant community of dedicated women employees who play a vital role at the agency. These stories will inspire girls everywhere to reach for the stars and explore the opportunities available through pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
