Changing the narrative of women in the media.
Media stereotypes portraying people in STEM as nerdy, anti-social, and unpopular negatively impact the number of women who choose those careers. By 2020, there will be 2 million unfilled STEM jobs and today, women only make up 24% of those roles. That’s a huge global price to pay for gender inequality. The stereotypes combined with a lack of representation of STEM women in senior roles make girls shy away from these careers even if they are good at math and science.
That’s where I come in. I’m Nitasha, the founder of Unboxd. I was tired of gender norms, cultural expectations, and lack of media representation of STEM women. No media brand combined the lifestyle/fashion visuals of vogue-style magazines and the content of science and technology magazines. I started Unboxd to house the stories of like-minded women who straddle norms, inspire others, and push boundaries.
