Women in the Workforce: A Journey in STEM
Women in the Workforce: A Journey in STEM will feature discussions about the challenges professional women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics experience beginning in grade school and moving through college and into their early careers. Among the topics examined will be potential ways to address these challenges and help young women consider STEM careers for their future.
The event will highlight senior career women sharing their personal journeys and offering advice to both women and men about how they can encourage young professionals in the workplace. These discussions will be invaluable for women in their early- to mid-career and informative about why many girls distance themselves from the path that can lead to successful careers in STEM fields. The event will conclude with interactive small group sessions and opportunities to network with speakers and other attendees in AFCEA’s professional community.
