Created by Elizabeth (Liz) Meador, a first year PhD student studying particle astrophysics and theoretical cosmology and a graduate of Whitman College's Physics and Astronomy department, Afrosteminism serves as a resource for underrepresented groups in STEM fields. Meador launched the site to counter the isolation that students in underrepresented groups may experience as they begin higher education journeys. The purpose of the site, a space where students can find advice on how to "survive and thrive," is ultimately to remind viewers that they "have a place in [their] field of choice."Afrosteminism features a variety of reference materials, including a list of "Tips for Survival and Thrival" (found under Tips), a collection of advice from those in the field (under Testimonials), and a Resources hub with information on scholarship, research, and conference opportunities. The Perspective page is a great place to end, as Meador reflects and offers insight on academic journeys. For more insight, follow along on Twitter (@afrophysicist__).
