Access the recording of this discussion.

Growing our nation’s economy to its full potential means ensuring that no innovator or entrepreneur is left behind. Despite making up nearly half of the U.S. workforce, women currently hold only 27% of STEM jobs. This means educating the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs in STEM is key. 

Join us for our next #WEWednesday event on Wednesday, August 9, 2023, as a panel of successful women entrepreneurs share their inspiring stories, offer tips for aspiring business owners, and answer your entrepreneurship questions. Panel topics will include the importance of STEM education for girls and young women, how to mentor the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs, and the challenges and opportunities of being an entrepreneur. The event will be live for an in-person audience and livestreamed from Delaware's Hagley Museum and Library, a non-profit organization in Wilmington and the state's first Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, with a sprawling collection of nearly 5,000 historic patent models.
