  • by

panel-discusssion-women-in-stem-careersWomen are widely underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM fields). In 2011,  women made up about half of the workforce, while filling less than a quarter of STEM jobs. Women in STEM fields also typically earn about 14% less than their male counterparts. So how do working women cope in these male-dominated fields? How do we increase interest in STEM degrees among women?

Discuss these questions and more with us on Tuesday, Feb. 7th at 12:00 p.m. in the Miller Nichols Library, room 325 for a panel discussion featuring women in STEM careers! Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to or by calling 816-235-1638. Sponsored by the Women in STEAM program.
