Featured Past Event: Recent Professional Development Program

Women in Stem Panel Discussion (11.20.17)

In Her Shoes Foundation (IHSF) recently hosted a Professional Development Program featuring Women in STEM to showcase an industry offer under-served by women.

The event included perspectives from nine expert panellists and was attended by more than 40 guests.

When it comes to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, women have had to work harder to get the recognition deserved. Our event focused on highlighting women in the STEM field who are making a difference in today’s society, to inspire other women to pursue a career in STEM.

Held at Adler University, we allowed time for intimate introductions to each panellist, thoughtful questions from audience members and a period of networking after the event.
