AnitaB.org is proud to announce that we are joining forces with the STEM Education Coalition to support students in STEM.
The STEM Education Coalition is a nonprofit that informs policymakers of the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. Promoting and improving STEM education, the Coalition argues, is necessary if the U.S. wishes to remain the economic and technological leader of the global marketplace.
Dr. Stephanie Rodriguez, Vice President of Policy and Engagement at AnitaB.org, will serve as our representative on the Coalition’s Leadership Council. She will work with the Leadership Council to further support STEM education as well as gender equality within STEM.
“AnitaB.org is eager to join the STEM Education Coalition in the important policy and advocacy efforts they lead,” Stephanie said. “Ensuring that the voice of all women technologists — regardless of technical pathway or personal background — is reflected in these conversations is a crucial component to our organization’s audacious vision of reaching 50:50 gender and pay parity in the tech sector by 2025.”
