Mrs. Bradshaw de Hernandez discussed the future of women in STEM introducing a forward “leapfrog” thinking for workforce technological transformation.
The presentations were followed by an engaging discussion about how we as a community at SBU can encourage and gender equity in the STEM fields. We hope to continue these discussions throughout the year! Thank you to our speakers and all who attended yesterday.
