Massachusetts Institute of Technology

We are profoundly grateful to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for their generous funding for the pilot program to launch our community, “Creating a Community for Women Graduate Students in STEM” or CCWGS. We are also deeply grateful to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s School of Science for sponsoring a second phase of the program, for the close partnership of the Latina Researchers Network, as well as numerous other partners and sponsoring organizations past and present:

“The show is fabulous: it's funny, it's engaging, it's filled with passion … It brought me back to my days as a graduate student in a male-dominated department trying to find my way. As an advocate for women and minorities in the STEM fields, I also recognized that Truth Values was a one-hour showcase of the issues of retention – the challenging and sometimes absurd and unfair things that drive students out of the STEM fields … Truth Values is more than just a performance, it's a dialogue about some important issues.”

— Paula Olsiewski, Program Director, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
