Women in STEM
Listen as four women from SNHU discuss challenges entering the STEM field, their own personal stories, and their experience of the Grace Hopper Conference. Twenty-five SNHU students traveled to Orlando in October for the annual Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing event, joining 18,000 women from across the country to network and listening to speakers who’ve paved the way in male-dominated fields.
Supporting STEM Students In and Out of the Classroom
At SNHU, we see the call to support women in STEM as more than just a national priority. It's part of our mission. For us, it starts with designing programs that provide the expertise students need to succeed in these critical fields. To further that mission, we joined the National Center for Women in Technology and provide opportunities for our female students to attend global networking events like the 2017 Grace Hopper Conference in Orlando, FL. On a local level, we're digging in at STEM workshops for NH Girls in Technology Day. Our hope is that through education, dedicated support and initiatives like these, more women will enter STEM fields and succeed in them.
