Introducing #SheCanStem

MLGW has 2770 employees; 752 (27%) are women. Of the 752 women, 143 (19%) hold STEM positions. On the first Tuesday of every month, beginning March 2019, we will be introducing you to different women working in STEM at MLGW.  

February 11th was declared International Day of Women and Girls in Science by the United Nations General Assembly. Over the past 15 years, the global community has made a lot of effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science. Yet women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science

The chart below provides a good overview of the current state of Women and Girls in regards to K-12 Education, Higher Education, and the STEM Workforce in the United States.
