#EachforEqual in STEM Education Panel

The #EachforEqual in STEM Education Policy panel is a part of Each for Equal Month @ 1871 and is hosted in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation.

The panel will focus on identifying how creating a more equitable education system (specifically for young women and girls in STEM education) will increase diversity in the tech industry and drive our future economy. We will be discussing what policies (local and national) are successfully enabling girls and women to pursue STEM careers as well as where entrepreneurs can help fill gaps.

Panelists include:

Kate Grossman - Senior Editor, Education - WBEZ Chicago
Mary Hadley- Executive Director - MakerGirl
Natasha Smith - Walker, Executive Director - Project Exploration
