Women in the Workforce: A Journey in STEM 2021



Women in the Workforce: A Journey in STEM 2021 

September 1, 2021

Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner, Virginia

This onsite event will feature discussions about the challenges professional women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers experience, beginning in grade school and moving through college and into early careers. Among the topics to be examined are potential ways to address these challenges and help young women consider STEM careers for their future.

The event highlights senior career women including those in academia and non-profits as they share their personal journeys. They will offer advice about how both women and men should work with K-12 and college programs to encourage girls and women to explore and pursue STEM education and careers, and how they can hire, promote, encourage, mentor, coach and sponsor women in STEM professionals in the workplace. The event will conclude with a networking reception and opportunities to meet speakers and other attendees in AFCEA's professional community. This is the second event in the series.
