Looking Ahead: The Future of Girls & Women in STEAM

There is a drive to encourage more girls to pursue studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in order to fill the pipeline with women prepared to fill critical positions across various STEM-based fields in the future.  To some degree, there has been success.  We are seeing more women  pursuing degrees in the sciences and launching successful careers; however, their numbers still fall a good bit behind that of males.  In this episode, I talk with two highly regarded professionals who have built successful STEM careers and have ideas about how we might be able to bring more women into the fold.  (Air Date: March 9, 2018)
