Over the past decade, women have experienced a push to get more involved in STEM. But a career in STEM might not look the same for everyone. In this panel, we’ll explore the different facets of a career in STEM through a robust discussion among female executives who made their way to STEM through leadership in healthcare. These women herald from a variety of backgrounds, including:
- drug development
- patient advocacy
- big data and informatics
- education and entrepreneurship
- Learn from women who made their way into STEM leadership positions and the work they’re doing to encourage the next generation of female leaders.
- Delve into the broadening definition of a career in STEM, understanding it can take many forms and can become a fit for women who have not typically gravitated toward science or healthcare.
- Share tips for encouraging girls and young women to pursue traditional and nontraditional paths toward healthcare leadership.
