How can women be empowered within STEM? This episode of Organize Your Butterflies, is the sixth in the “Y Women Startup” curriculum. This is the third chapter under “The Core of Business Operations,” and focuses on the challenges that women face when entering the (relatively) new STEM sector. This conversation features Leslie Cruz, the founder and CEO of Million Women Mentors, discussing what is driving the “tsunami” of women coming into the workforce, and the disparity of women in STEM roles. Their discussion also includes the belief gap between girls and boys, the importance of solving problems from a technological lens, and why mentorship is so important to attracting and retaining women within STEM.
