The recent article notes the next generation’s leaders in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Within the next five years, STEM jobs are projected to grow twice as quickly as jobs in other fields according to the U.S. Bureau of Statistics. While all jobs are expected to grow by 10.4 percent, STEM jobs are expected to increase by 21.4 percent. Similarly, 80 percent of jobs in the next decade will require technical skills.
But we have a shortage on the number women graduating with the STEM major. Where are the discrepancies? How do we expose STEM educations to more girls at a very young age? How do we incentivized established leaders to become mentors?

We will dive deeper in a thorough candid discussion by leaders across diversed background, expertise and career aspirations in helping to shape the future. Whether you are GEN M/ GEN X/ GEN Y and the established leaders then you ought to come to this panel discussion to gain new perspective.
