Millennium Fellowship Project: The SISTEM
The STEM Sisters aspires to encourage STEM women at my university and local community to pursue their studies with purpose and ambition. It will inspire young women by connecting their experiences to successful female STEM professors, students, and local STEM leaders. It will lead to mutual understanding and empathy among university students and professors.
By highlighting the raw talents and candid stories of STEM queens, the project hopes to share the realities and benefits of STEM careers for women. A website will be created featuring female STEM trailblazers and innovators. This website will include interviews and videos. Virtual events may also be feasible.
Education is a right for everyone. The current world needs female STEM leaders to address the problems of tomorrow.
