This #CyberChats session featured an important discussion about Women in STEM.

Women are vastly underrepresented in STEM fields. This panel of women in STEM share how they navigated their respective career pathways to achieve their career success, and how they have managed in a male-dominated career field.  Each speaker shares her story and provides participants with real-world experiences and suggestions for tomorrow’s women in STEM.
