The Women of Hopkins exhibit grew from a grassroots effort at Johns Hopkins called Achieving Gender Equity in Sciences, a reading and discussion series exploring biases women face in the STEM fields. As part of the effort, PMB Professor Karen Fleming participated in the Diversity Innovation Grant competition aiming to increase the awareness of female heroes from Hopkins and was awarded funding for the Women of Hopkins Art Exhibition.
