When people think of STEM, they rarely think of Black women. Why not? One estimate claims that only 2.9% of STEM graduates are Black women.


The Shuri Effect explores the complex reasons why there are so few Black women in STEM, the inspiring ways they have continued to be pioneers, and what we all can do to change the situation. The book delves into gendered and racial attitudes and how they both feed into the lived experiences and statistical realities.


The Shuri Effect explores:

  • The need to widen aspirations as well as access
  • The obscene gaps created by non-diverse teams and non-inclusive design
  • The experiences of Black women in the US, UK, and across the African continent


This book is a must-read if you are a Black woman looking to see yourself and your experiences on the page or are interested in race, gender, and pursuing equity based on those identifiers. The representation gap for Black women is a result of broken systems, and we need to understand and change the status quo.
