Description

Strengthening the Pipeline from Service to STEM: A series focusing on the future of Women Veterans in STEM

Women veterans bring many strengths to the civilian workforce, such as leadership, teamwork and problem-solving skills, as well as resilience and persistence. Women veterans are nearly twice as likely to be in a STEM occupation than are non-veteran women. While there have been increase in the number of programs and the availability of support services for veterans, and for women, but to there is currently no structure or system to align all these efforts to serve women veterans. To that end, Education Development Center (EDC) has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and NSF INCLUDES to examine how to leverage the unique strengths of women veterans to address barriers to their (re) engagement in the STEM workforce by hosting a virtual convening on this topic in March 2021.

The schedule and topics for the webinar series are:

      • October 20, 2020, 3:30 - 4:30 EST: Women Veteran Transitions to the Civilian Workforce
      • October 27, 2020, 3:30 - 4:30 EST: STEM Workforce Development for Women Veterans
