In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub has launched #STEMLikeAWoman for the month of March. We’re launching this social media campaign to bring awareness regarding the gender gap in STEM careers. As we have discussed in our Closing the Gap Project, women and gender minorities make up just over 25% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and men vastly outnumber women majoring in most STEM fields in college.
How It Works
We’re kicking off #STEMLikeaWoman on March 8, International Women’s Day. We’ll kick it off with social media posts tagging 500 Women Scientists Corvallis. From there, we want you to tag a woman in your life who works in or is studying to work in a STEM career. Please use the #STEMLikeaWoman in your post to help bring awareness and to take part in the campaign.
To make it more exciting and to provide some extra motivation, the Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub will donate $5 (up to $500) for every #STEMLikeaWoman tag to 500 Women Scientists Corvallis!
