Paola Moreno-Roman is the founder of Yachaq Warmi, an initiative dedicated to empowering and celebrating Latinas in STEM, emphasizing those from indigenous communities. The name originates from Quechua, a South American indigenous language, and roughly translates to “female scientist,” where “Yachaq” translates to “who knows” and “Warmi” to “woman.”
