Join the Wilson Center for cocktails and a panel discussion on women in technology and ways to increase participation for women in masculine-dominated fields of STEM. 

Questions for conversation:
1. How can we make space for girls in STEM?
2. How does diversity help promote innovation in STEM?
3. What are some of the barriers that women – either yourself or others – still face today in science and technology sectors? How are you circumventing those barriers? 
4. What do you think needs to happen to promote more women in STEM fields?
