Mini-Series: Men Supporting Women in STEM
Gender equality needs both genders to work together. I am grateful for the men who pushed me to pursue STEM and excel at STEM. From my father, my thesis professor, men who hired me, men who promoted me to my husband who supports all my career goals. There are some amazing men who are supporting and promoting girls to join STEM. I wanted to interview some of my favorite MEN IN STEM to learn about them and what they think both genders can do to effectively close the gender gap.
