Women in Education Networking Series: The Realities Women Face in STEM
Please watch the NOVA documentary, Picture a Scientist, prior to this discussion
During our session, we’ll chat about the ways that we can prepare female students for the realities of a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths). Better understanding the barriers for women in a scientific career can help us support them through their K-12 education so they are ready for university and beyond. We will also discuss the realities of being a female educator in STEM fields in schools today. What strategies, tools & expertise can we equip ourselves and our female students with to prepare for these experiences?
