Overview

Acknowledging role models of STEM leadership is the purpose of 100 Women Leaders in STEM, but it also a “call to action.” As Susan O’Day of Disney reflects, “We need to be more aggressive in showing girls and young women role models and highlighting stories of successful leaders.” Senator Kirsten Gillibrand adds in her support, pleading that that “we need you.” We need this generation of women to stand up and serve as role models to encourage young women to develop the critical skills needed for the competitive workforce of tomorrow. As Beverly Willis, architect, writes, “Women need more opportunities to design and the world needs more women designers… It is urgent that the U.S. attracts more women to these disciplines and motivates them to stay.”
