Oct. 5 Women in STEM - Town Hall Event

Join Washington STEM, West Sound STEM and the Women's Funding Alliance for our Women in STEM Town Hall. The Town Hall event, moderated by Liz Vivian, Executive Director of the Women’s Funding Alliance, will feature a panel of experts on women’s issues in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). All are welcome to attend this free event.

Washington ranks first in concentration of STEM jobs, but women are disproportionately missing out on the vast array of STEM opportunities available. This is an equity issue: STEM jobs pay consistently better than non-STEM jobs. It’s also an economic issue: By 2018, it’s predicted that there will be nearly 50,000 unfilled STEM jobs in our state.

In our STEM economy, there is an enormous opportunity for women to take hold of the wide swath of unfilled STEM careers and create a foundation of leadership for decades to come. The first step toward this future is to raise STEM education awareness among women.

What: Bremerton Women in STEM Town Hall
When: Monday, October 5, 2015, from 5 pm-7 pm
Where: Olympic College Bremer Student Center, 1600 Chester Avenue, Bremerton, WA 98337-1699

Speakers: Liz Vivian, Executive Director, Women’s Funding Alliance Phyllis Harvey-Buschel, Ed.D., Director of K-12 Programs, Washington MESA Kylie Hurd, Miss Washington International and Microsoft Program Manager Paula Boyum, Ph.D., Associate Dean, Northeastern University
