Native American Women and Girls in STEM
November 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm CST
Do you know a Native American female high school student who wants to learn about a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)? Help us recruit students for a virtual program by AT&T and the Caroline and Ora Smith Foundation on November 21, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
According to the National Science Foundation, women remain underrepresented in the science and engineering workforce, with the greatest disparities occurring in the STEM fields. And, American Indians/Alaska Natives make up a smaller share of the science and engineering workforce than their proportion in the general population.
The Caroline and Ora Smith Foundation is a 501(C)(3) organization that promotes, sponsors, supports, and trains Native American girls and women around the country in the STEM fields in programs that are evidence-based, culturally appropriate and supported by the community and tailored to what works best in each specific community.
Our goal is to inspire the next generation of Native American women to imagine their future as leaders and innovators in STEM.
Please join the AT&T and the Caroline and Ora Smith Foundation and to hear fascinating stories from some of AT&T’s top women and special guest Robin Maxkii, a Native American technology activist! We believe the more we can show young indigenous women that you can pursue a career in STEM, the more they will succeed in a professional field of their dreams. We have gathered a panel of successful, incredible women who charted their own courses.
Who should register? Current Native American high school students (incoming freshman through just-graduated seniors) who identify as female.
