#MacScientists is a brand committed to uplifting women of color and changing the face of STEM. We want to make a statement that is bold and empowering. We feel that our name and our mission reflects that.

Why are we doing this?

#MacScientist apparel was designed to make a statement and pass the message: STEM looks like us.  We want to show that we can be multi-faceted; combining any and all of our interests no matter what they are and pursue a career in STEM.  Our clothes help break stereotypes against women in STEM fields. We think you deserve clothes that make a statement, empowers you to take on any challenges no matter how hard they may be, and are also cute! 

Our name and our official logo t-shirt, "#macscientist", was inspired by our CEO and the original MacScientist, Devin Swiner and her own experiences of exploring her interests in science and her love for lipstick. For her, this hashtag reflects more than her love of lipstick and for chemistry, it shows that women in STEM can do it all. We want to use this brand to show young women of color that they can have and explore other interests beyond STEM and that it's perfectly okay to do so. Our brand was created to push back against so many pervasive stereotypes in the industry.  If this sounds like you, we welcome you to join our community and back this project. In addition to getting some amazing merchandise, the funds from this campaign will go toward supporting MacScientists workshops in professional development and career growth, goal-setting, and various STEM topics, as well building our online members-only community platform to provide more customized resources for each of our community members.
