Topic: How Google, Microsoft, and Amazon All Got into the Girls' STEM Business: Movements to Open Science and Engineering to Young Women
Speaker: Dr. Amy Bix
For centuries, Europeans and Americans had defined science and technology as masculine territory. But the last six decades have brought a revolution permanently reshaping the culture of twenty-first-century science, engineering, education, and childrearing. This talk traces the rise and impact of our modern "girls' STEM movement," today's multi-million dollar, international campaigns by schools, government, non-profits, and corporations, all encouraging more young women to enter STEM.
