Serial innovator, promoting initiatives to expand exposure and inclusivity in STEM.

"We want to change the narratives behind female STEM innovators. Show the world that if we support a woman in STEM, then she can change the world."

If she can SEE it, she can BE it. Her last name may be Small, but her work and accomplishments are HUGE! Nicole Small serves as CEO of LH Holdings and president of the Lyda Hill Foundation. Nicole has been involved with STEM throughout her career, previously serving as CEO of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Now her work with the IF/THEN Initiative highlights #WomeninSTEM bringing real life STEM role models to girls everywhere and showing them the different STEM career pathways they can pursue. The program also demonstrates how STEM impacts people’s lives in both expected and unexpected ways. Nicole believes and knows that if girls can’t see women in STEM roles, they won’t believe that they too can one day fill them. So let's embrace and empower women in STEM in classrooms, media, museums, and everywhere!
