Name: Lessons in Leadership | Women Leaders in STEM
Date: April 28, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
Event Description:

 

While jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields are growing faster than any others, and pay considerably more, fewer United States citizens are pursuing STEM degrees, compared to their peers in many countries. And the percentage of U.S. women with STEM degrees is decreasing.

What do these trends mean for the U.S. economy and society, and how can America get more young ladies engaged in STEM related careers and classes?

That is the focus of the Loudoun County Chamber’s “Women Leaders in STEM” program, a discussion with several successful women leaders in STEM related careers here in Loudoun County.

This moderated panel discussion will focus on why these women leaders chose STEM-related fields, the importance of mentors and early engagement had in their education and career choices and how the U.S. can encourage more young women to consider STEM careers.

Our panelists include:
Gwyneth Card, a Lab Group Leader at the HHMI-Janelia Research Campus;
Diana Burley, Executive Director and chair of the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P) and professor at The George Washington University;
Shawn Purvis, Vice President and CIO for Northrop Grumman Corp.
