Learn Why Kim Reynolds, Lieutenant Governor of Iowa, is pushing for more STEM Programs

 “YOU have a chance to shape your own destiny.” -  Kim Reynolds, Lieutenant Governor of Iowa

In the past, for many women, pursuing a job in the STEM workforce did not seem possible; lack of information, school programs and even mentorship, guidance and encouragement centered around female STEM were unavailable. Thankfully, this is no longer the case. With more opportunities than ever before, women (and their employers) should be aware of endless possibilities out there. Learn about why Kim Reynolds, Lieutenant Governor of Iowa is pushing for more STEM programs in schools and business in the Women in STEM- My Story, My Advice project:

Kim’s Story:

Kim Reynolds, Lieutenant Governor of Iowa

Growing up in St. Charles, Iowa, it never occurred to me to that I could become a food scientist, civil engineer, or aerospace engineer. Primarily because I didn't have the chance to learn within an innovative STEM classroom, join a robotics team or experience computer coding. Those experiences didn't exist in my school district. That's why I'm so passionate about driving STEM education. STEM truly offers unlimited opportunities to young women and students who are underrepresented or underserved. As Lieutenant Governor of Iowa, I am deeply committed to preparing our students for the jobs of tomorrow.  Read the rest of Kim's story and her advice:

Meet women just like the Lieutenant Governor of Iowa, share your own stories and advice and influence the next generation of STEM professionals at the Women in STEM Idea Exchange Summit taking place on October 21st, 2014 at Bentley University. The Women-in-STEM Idea Exchange Summits provide the opportunity to make one-to-one connections with potential employees, feed mentoring and internship program pipelines, maximize ROI of K-12 STEM investments, increase STEM retention rates, as well as promote internal initiatives in support of women in the workplace.
