Ask current students who are Women in STEM questions about academics, campus life, what it means to be a woman in STEM, and more.
STEM disciplines have been predominantly filled with male educators and students. Now, women across the world are paving their way towards careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. In this Q&A session, we'll ask a panel of current women in STEM students from a variety of colleges about their experiences in their field. Webinar attendees will also get to participate in the second half of the Q&A.
