"How STEM Jobs Can Take Women To The C-Suite And Beyond": A message worth sharing!
“The STEM background is a great foundation for problem solving and leadership. Our job is to solve problems. A lot of people believe as an engineer you’re sitting in a cubicle in front of a computer by yourself. We have to collaborate to really innovate.”
Every year, Forbes magazine hosts a Women’s Summit in New York City to bring together successful women redefining careers. This year one of the sessions focused on the opportunities presented to women through STEM-related careers (“STEM: The New Pathway to the Corner Office “).
The quote at the head of this post came from an article highlighting the key points from the session, and it gets right to the heart of the issue. Too often, STEM careers are seen as the exclusive domain of nerdy “brogrammers” but the reality is that success in this field relies on the characteristics that women excel at – collaboration, communication and fresh points of view. STEM careers can be a great launching pad for ambitious young women.
It is fantastic to see women standing up and arguing the case for more girls in STEM-related education.
It is a message that is worth sharing!
