February isn’t just for heart-shaped Valentines and chocolates. It’s also about women, specifically those who are in scientific majors and jobs. February 11 was International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a day that was created by the United Nations to recognize the roles women hold in the technical fields. And it is important to promote awareness: with female enrollment in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM-related) fields hovering around 30 percent it’s time to make those numbers rise. This week at ST Engineering iDirect we have been excited to celebrate our female engineers who research, write code, test, lead groups and connect the world, amongst other responsibilities.
Let’s open a discussion about ways in which we can promote STEM to the younger female generation so they are encouraged to study these subjects in school and head into the workforce.
Here’s a snapshot of just some of our wonderwomen, who enable our technology to flourish and push our technological boundaries on a daily basis. Each of these ladies has a story to tell about their journey into technology and we are proud to share that with you.
If you are a female engineer or thinking of a role in a technology company, why not check out our jobs pages where you can find a plethora of opportunities to join the ST Engineering family.
