“Women in S.T.E.A.M are important because we need women to continue breaking barriers and establishing stepping stones, just as women before us have done, in every professional field imaginable so that generations after can build on top of the work that has been done and ensure that the achievement of women in careers continue to evolve and are never lost or forgotten.”
