Hidden No More: Empowering Women Leaders in STEM
October 14 - October 18
Women dedicated to various STEM programs will arrive in Albuquerque in mid-October to study Albuquerque’s STEM resources for young girls, STEM education, and youth engagement. The visitors are from several places across the world, including Canada, El Salvador, Malaysia, Netherlands, Palestinian Territories, Romania, Swaziland, and Uganda. While in Albuquerque, they plan to visit with the National Society of Black Engineers, Cultivating Coders, Sandia Preparatory School, former President and Laboratories Director at Sandia National Laboratories Jill Hurby, and Explora Museum. Visitors will also participate in a Global Innovator Program, during which several of the ladies will meet with local community members to discuss innovations in STEM and share experiences and stories.
