Engineer Nameplate Necklace - Silver
You can’t usually tell what an engineer looks like, but you can if they’re wearing this necklace! A nameplate necklace made of hypoallergenic stainless steel with the word “Engineer” at 3 cm wide on a 40 cm chain and a Two Photon charm at the end.
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 neuroscientist around their neck, much like wearing their name as a symbol of growing into adulthood.
