Program in Va. to Encourage Women to Pursue STEM Careers
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Virginia War Memorial is presenting a program to help encourage women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
The free program entitled “Women in STEM: Respecting the Past, Navigating the Future,” is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
It is being co-produced with the U.S. Army Women’s Museum at Fort Lee to commemorate March as Women’s History Month.
Officials say the program will highlight the current educational emphasis on encouraging women to embrace STEM opportunities to build a more competitive civilian and military workforce.
It will feature a panel discussion that will include participants from Fort Lee, DuPont, the Virginia Department of Education and Virginia Commonwealth University to give military and civilian business perspectives.
