Oct. 17 Panel on Women in STEM

The Chapel Hill AAUW invites educators, parents, students and local employers to join us on October 17, 10-11:30 AM at the Chapel Hill Public Library to learn more about how we can successfully engage girls and young women in the study and professional practice of STEM.

A panel of local public school educators and university STEM program leaders will offer insights into why this is an important issue for our children and communities. Based on their research and experience, panel members will discuss promising approaches and practices. We encourage those with experience in STEM studies or careers to attend so that you can share ideas for how community members, parents and educators can promote girls’ positive perceptions and successful academic preparation in STEM. We know this is an area of growing opportunity for those seeking personal fulfillment and interested in making professional contributions.

Consistent with the AAUW mission, this event is designed to provide both an opportunity for those invested in this issue to become more informed as well as a way to network.
