Millennium Fellowship Project: Advancing Women in the STEM Fields
The project was in three parts: (1) to lead a Networking event to talk professionally about what women experience in the workplace, (2) to create a service project that educates elementary girls in the opportunities with STEM, and (3) to bring a speaker onto Furman's campus from a different country to talk about STEM fields globally.
About the Millennium Fellow
Greetings! My name is Amelia Davidson and I am a Junior Neuroscience major and Ancient Greek and Roman Studies (AGRS) minor at THE Furman University. Ever since I was little, I imagined a career in science (though it started with paleontology) and I know young me would be proud of the things I am doing now. However, not nearly as many women and girls have such a cultivating environment as my own. Through this program, I hope to provide the opportunity for girls to question and appreciate the world around them through the lens of science!
