AWM to Host “Women with Solutions: STEM Leadership in Media”

Women with SolutionsThe Alliance for Women in Media recently announced that it will host the Women with Solutions: STEM Leadership in Media event on October 28, 2014, at the Yale Club of New York City. The latest in AWM’s Women Award Series, Women with Solutions will shine a light on women whose leadership on‐camera and in the board room has increased awareness and access to science, technology, engineering, and math, especially to girls and young women.

America’s science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) workforce is crucial to our innovative capacity and global competitiveness. Yet women are vastly underrepresented in STEM jobs and among STEM degree holders. Across industries, AWM is committed to bringing more women into the STEM fields through education, leadership, and content creation.  “STEM education and careers are so important, and the Alliance for Women in Media understands the critical role media plays in increasing awareness of STEM and in creating jobs that rely on a strong STEM education,” said Kay Olin, AWM Chair. “Our Women with Solutions event will honor STEM leadership and inspire and educate more women to pursue careers in these fascinating, dynamic, and influential fields.”
