Climbing the Grand Canyon of STEAM - Facilitator

As Arizona becomes the next tech hub, we have tremendous opportunities for our STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) professionals to reflect the state’s growing diverse community. Addressing these gender and racial gaps will support Arizona’s economic growth while developing our next generation of STEAM innovators. YWCA is leading the Equity in STEAM Initiative, in partnership with Intel and SRP, to advance women and people of color in STEAM. Our Equity in STEAM Coalition leaders from Lights Camera Discover, Cultural Coalition and Arizona Sustainability Alliance will talk about how they are impacting change in Arizona.
