Underrepresentation of girls and women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers is a national concern. Mitzi Montoya (Vice President of Entrepreneurship and Innovation and University Dean) at Arizona State University (ASU) knows first-hand that colleges and universities can reverse this gender disparity—especially with the support of professional women and industry partners.
Join us on March 3rd when Mitzi Montoya will give an inspiring talk on the current status of STEM programs along with several new key initiatives nationally and here in Arizona. Did you know that in the past decade opportunities in STEM related careers have grown three times faster than
non-STEM career opportunities? Were you aware that while women comprise 48 percent of the U.S. workforce – just 24 percent are employed in STEM fields – a statistic that has held constant over the past ten years? Have you heard of the Million Women Mentors’ engagement campaign – a national call to action mobilizing corporations, government entities, non-profits, and higher education groups around the imperative of mentoring young girls and young women in STEM fields?
Our host is 85 Broads member Darlene Collins. She is an experienced industry leader in healthcare and
venture capital, will lead the interview and discussion. How can more women in STEM fields and careers help improve our country’s competitiveness and keep us on the forefront of innovation? What does this gender underrepresentation mean for our future? What role can we play to
encourage girls and young women to consider STEM related careers?
This program is designed for professionals in any industry; women who have an interest in encouraging
STEM among our youth and future leaders; moms of ambitious and driven daughters; and all of us who want to hear from an amazing thought-leader who is standing up to a national challenge
to create more opportunities for our young women and for our country.
