Description

From "That Shirt" to "That Other Shirt”

Finding Ways to Honor the Trailblazing Women of the Past & Future

A talk by Elly Zupko — equity, diversity & inclusivity activist and communications expert

In 2014, people across the world saw a lead scientist from the European Space Agency appear on international television to talk about the Philae lander mission wearing a garment covered in scantily-clad women. It became known as “that shirt.” Elly responded by designing “that other shirt,” which features over 50 notable women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics).

Her successful Kickstarter campaign led to the formation of a non-profit, SMLX Good, which supports STEM programmes for girls and has raised over $40,000. Hear how Elly supports women in STEM & EDI through SMLX Good.
