Passport to Success #E3 Conference
Time & Location
About The Event
S.C.O.R.E, INC was designed by its founders two minority sister doctors to expose, empower & encourage young women to pursue a STEM degree. Women are not pursuing STEM degrees or careers at that same rate as men. Women remain a minority in STEM careers, women made up 24% of the STEM working force in 2015. These numbers are even more alarming for women of color, making up only 10% of working scientists and engineers.
Join us and our moderator, Jennifer Ponder, as we engage in a panel discussion made up of a broad range of women who have been successful in STEM fields and can add insight to their unique experiences on their career paths.
