Scientist Nameplate Necklace
An 18k gold plated nameplate necklace, in two sizes : the word “Scientist” 4 cm wide and 1 cm tall on a 45 cm chain or a more subtle choker version with the nameplate 3 cm wide on a 40 cm chain.
A portion of proceeds will go to the iMCB initiative to improve inclusion of marginalized scientists at UC Berkeley.
Nameplate necklaces are announcements of identity, popularized by young women of color in American cities. Learn more about the culturally rich history of nameplate necklaces via the scholars Marcel Rosa-Salas and Isabel Flowers through their article and their movement of #DocumentingTheNameplate.
Our vision by creating this necklace is to give young women of color the same power of wearing their identity as a scientist around their neck, much like wearing their name as a symbol of growing into adulthood.
