Shaughnessy Naughton '99, founder of the nonprofit organization 314 Action was recently profiled by Harper's BAZAAR.
Naughton's organization is dedicated to supporting members of the STEM community running for elected office.
From the article:
"Naughton’s love of science dates back to the fifth grade, when she made her first chemistry set. She would go on to major in the discipline at Bryn Mawr College and research a new synthesis of a breast cancer drug before joining the private sector, working on new approaches to infectious disease treatments. The potential for a major discovery is what keeps her inspired by science."
Read Could More Female Scientists Save America on the Harper's website. Naughton majored in chemistry at Bryn Mawr.
