CSUF SWE Women in STEM Panel

The Asian Pacific American Resource Center (APARC) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), hosted a “Lunch and Learn: Women in Stem” event on Monday, March 20, 2017. Three women panelists, working in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) spoke to students at California State University, Fullerton about women representation in a male-dominated fields. Some obstacles that were addressed were that for girls, the interest of working in a STEM field diminishes, as they get older, especially after middle school. As a response to this issue, one of our panelists stated, “That’s why we do outreach efforts to try and work with girls who are interested in STEM, so they don’t lose interest.”
