      PLEN Women in STEM Policy Seminar

      While women's participation in the STEM field has grown in recent years, men still far outnumber women. This gap is especially pronounced in the areas of physics, engineering, and computer science, where women earn only 20% of Bachelor's degrees. This seminar offers college women a valuable opportunity to hear firsthand from women in science, health, and technology who are shaping our nation’s STEM agenda. Students will connect with senior women in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors. Connect - Build your professional network by learning how to effectively maintain professional relationships while connecting with women leaders in Washington, DC and in your seminar cohort. Lead - Learn directly from women leaders about their recipes for success and return to campus with a better knowledge of available career paths to empower other women on your campus. Discover - Contextualize the knowledge you're gaining in the university classroom and learn how to apply it in a successful career after graduation.
