You got us one step closer to closing the gender gap in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) by supporting Innovators Speaker Series: STEM Talks.
It is so important to close the gender gap in STEM—women and men bring different life experiences to projects and, together, help guide the direction of scientific inquiries.
Thank you to our gracious speakers. You helped us highlight success stories of women in STEM and inspired change:
