Tech Savvy for Adults
Another highlight this year is the Special Panel Presentation, where AAUW’s Why So Few research report highlights important findings about barriers for girls in STEM and proactive ways to address. This research “comes to life” as you hear from a special panel, with expertise in education, industry, and UB’s School of Engineering.
There is very special addition to this year’s program, a “meet the author session” with Diann Jordan, author of Sisters in Science. You'll enjoy this conversation on how women can add a very distinctively good aspect to STEM careers. Read more about Dr. Jordan here.
And you’ll hear even more “7”s as we provide you with valuable information on bullying, financial aid, and academic preparedness.
