Online • March 5, 2015

In this session, Ann Pollina will focus on research around women currently in STEM fields and her experience as an educator.

Thursday, March 5, 2015 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

In this session, Ann will focus on research around women currently in STEM fields and her experience as an educator. She will discuss the importance of STEM education for girls, particularly starting in early education through high school, and the economic implications for the United States and the world to have more women entering into STEM fields. Manufacturing, in particular, is seeing a drastic discrepancy in jobs available versus qualified workers coming out of college. In fact, as a participant in the launch of the Global STEM Alliance at the United Nations, Westover School recognizes that the STEM crisis is not just contained to the US—it is a global crisis and we are addressing it head on.

Ann will discuss what women can do for girls and, in fact, their own daughters, to support interest in STEM in school, college and beyond.
