McLean, VA (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
The Alliance for Women in Media is pleased to announce that it will host the Women with Solutions: STEM Leadership in Media event on October 28, 2014, at the Yale Club of New York City. The latest in AWM’s Women Award Series, Women with Solutions will shine a light on women whose leadership on-camera in the board room has increased awareness and access to science, technology, engineering, and math, especially to girls and young women.
America’s science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) workforce is crucial to our innovative capacity and global competitiveness. Yet women are vastly underrepresented in STEM jobs and among STEM degree holders. Across industries, AWM is committed to bringing more women into the STEM fields through education, leadership, and content creation.
More women are pursuing careers in this vastly evolving media landscape and digital revolution, and AWM will recognize Women with Solutions honorees during the event. Women working a diverse range of media-related areas – including programming, technology, engineering, finance, digital, and content creation – will be honored for their accomplishments, influence, and innovation as STEM leaders. AWM will also explore and discuss career opportunities in STEM as well as how to advance more women to the leading edge of media.
“STEM education and careers are so important, and the Alliance for Women in Media understands the critical role media plays in increasing awareness of STEM and in creating jobs that rely on a strong STEM education,” said Kay Olin, AWM Chair. “Our Women with Solutions event will honor STEM leadership and inspire and educate more women to pursue careers in these fascinating, dynamic, and influential fields.”
AWM’s Women Award Series has showcased women in media who inspire and motivate us. In 2012, AWM recognized Women in Numbers, the women researching, analyzing and reporting on financial issues in media, as well as the chief financial officers of media companies. AWM honored Women Who Represent in 2013, recognizing the women that govern, those that influence, and those that inform – all helping to shape the political and media landscape in our country and beyond.
