The number of well-paying and exciting careers in STEM continues to grow even as the percentage of women in those roles stays low. While women continue to make strides, such as out-pacing men in earning graduate degrees¹, women make up only a quarter of the STEM workforce.
Why is there such a discrepancy and what do we do about it? Register here INCLUSIVE FUTURE: BRIDGING THE GENDER GAP IN STEM CAREERS on Thursday, October 14th to join the conversation with top STEM leaders about strategies to close the gender gap.
In Steps Toward Equality in Stem, leaders and the barrier breakers in STEM will discuss the lack of representation of women in STEM careers & how authentic allyship can help abolish gender discrimination within STEM. Hear from Dr. Moira Gilchrest, Vice President of Scientific & Strategic Communications, Philip Morris International, Dr. Sarah Saska, CEO of Feminuity, Aaron Jorbin, Senior Director of Editorial Technology at PMC, and Tania Yuki, Founder, and CEO of Shareablee about their policies and practices to uplift women in STEM.
In our second conversation Dismantling Disinformation on Social Media and Beyond, Dr. Moira Gilchrist will be joined by Jennifer Dyer, CEO & Co-Founder, Yappa and Liz Plank, Award-Winning Journalist, to discuss the advancement of equality and inclusion and the importance of breaking out of your echo chambers and using your platform for good.
