STEM Awareness creation
To break gender based bias and correct cultural stereotypes which have been handed down from past generations. These stereotypes hold girls back from utilizing their full potentials, so we invite women to share their success and progress stories of how they overcame these and other limitations to achieve great heights in various STEM fields. We also create awareness about the diverse facets and job and career opportunities in STEM fields.
