Recently STEMConnector launched the Million Women Mentors initiative to encourage mentorship to get more girls into STEM careers. Nepris, an online platform to connect industry professionals to the classroom, is proud to partner with MWM to support this mission.
Seventy-four percent of STEM workers are male and only 26 percent female. Of 100 female bachelor students, 12 graduate with STEM major but only three continue to work in STEM fields 10 years after graduation according to research by Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce.
Ladies, We can do this! by Julie Kantor summarizes the six ways women can mentor girls and get them excited about STEM careers.
MWM and Nepris invite you join us for a webinar on Jan 17th at 11:30 am central to hear from a panel of leading ladies on Engaging girls in STEM: the problem, the solution and the future!
