Women are traditionally underrepresented in the STEM field, and subsequently underrepresented in archival documentation. The goal of this project, "Women in STEM: A Digital Oral History Project", is to interview 6 women from varying backgrounds and experiences who are successful professionals in the STEM field to document their experiences. One way previous projects in this field have encouraged women interested in STEM is to provide role models that individuals can look up to in their pursuit of entering the industry. The interviews will be one way to highlight some successful women in the field that individuals can watch to gain inspiration from. Interview questions covered topics ranging from early childhood to their experiences in the industry. Questions also include advice each woman would give to those entering the field today. The interviews were conducted by Jace Nixon under the supervision of Reagan Grimsley. All the interviews produced in this project will be stored in the UAH Archives and will be accessible to the public
