Linda Hall Library Launches Women in STEM YouTube Series

As the Linda Hall Library continues to build upon our historic strengths with a specific acquisition focus on material created by and for women, we have realized that this effort should extend beyond our collections. The work and accomplishments of women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics can be found amongst our stacks, but they can also be witnessed in real-time, in the real world, here in our hometown of Kansas City and beyond. To continue to highlight and lift up the women making advancements in their STEM industries and their work, we are pleased to launch our newest YouTube series, Women in STEM.

Our series kicks off with Library President, Lisa Browar discussing the achievements and contributions of three incredible women in STEM: Grace Murray Hopper, Shirley McBay, and Ruth Patrick.

Throughout the rest of the series, you will hear from various local women in STEM like Libby Allman, Supply Chain Vice President, and Tammy Buckner, CEO of WeCode KC, as they discuss the importance of perseverance and determination required in the STEM fields and the need to showcase the diversity of members within the STEM ecosystem in order to encourage future generations to enter these fields.

Subscribe to Linda Hall Library on YouTube to follow along with us as we continue to pay homage to the incredible work of these women as they trailblaze the way for the future generations of women in STEM.
