STEM for Girls: Building Increased Engagement
Only 1 in 7 engineers is female, and women have seen no employment growth in STEM jobs since 2000. This session is designed to look at why we see the gender gap in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and how we better support the shift to increased awareness and excitement around women in STEM. Participants will be encouraged to engage in this panel style discussion with female education leaders who are dedicated and enthusiastic about empowering girls to be successful in STEM.
