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.
With his platform The SciCommunity, Daniel Kennedy provides a platform for women in STEM to share their efforts in delivering the very best in science communication.

With 10,000 plus strong following, the SciCommunity is full of incredible women and male allies who are determined to uplift each other and support each other in communicating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
