Nevertheless Podcast celebrates "the women transforming teaching and learning through technology". At the end of Season Two, they commissioned four female illustrators from South America, Africa, the Middle East and China to produce a set of downloadable posters in nine languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese Brazilian, French Canadian, Simplified Chinese and English. "The women featured serve as amazing role models in their fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics". These posters are intended to "help raise awareness of their achievements, and hopefully inspire a new generation of girls and women in STEM".
