Kickoff Session Sneak Peek: “Why It’s Good to TALK About Gender Parity in STEM”

Posted in: 8th Annual Kickoff Conference

Track: Bridging the STEM Barriers

While data shows us that most STEM professions in the U.S. remain male-dominated, we are still scared to talk about gender, racial, and other discrimination in tech and science.

Join this session to learn why it’s good for us to engage the conversation, and particularly why it’s important to start the discussion at a young age. This is a panel composed of both adult STEM professionals and CSO students.
