What’s It Like to Be a Woman in STEM? Join AAUW’s Twitter Party to Find Out!
Time: 3:30–4:30 p.m. ET
Location: On Twitter!
With support from Green Works, AAUW is turning to women scientists to answer questions about their education, their work, and their inspirations!
Our Twitter party will consist of a Q&A with esteemed AAUW alumnae on their experiences as women in STEM, including how — as parents, employers, and educators — we can help more women and girls take advantage of their #naturalpotential and excel in STEM fields.
According to AAUW’s research, women make up only 12 percent of engineers and 26 percent of computing professionals. Why are these numbers so low? What can we do to encourage more women and girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields?
Ask your questions on Twitter by using hashtag #naturalpotential.
