Panelists to Address Business and Personal Benefits of an Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
CHICAGO, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 31, Kim Hammonds, Cristina Negri, Wanda Reder and Sophie Vandebroek will serve on a panel at The Executives' Club of Chicago Women's Leadership Breakfast to discuss how their backgrounds in STEM have shaped their careers, as well as contributed measurable value to their organizations. These four outstanding female scientists, engineers and business executives representing The Boeing Company, Argonne National Laboratory, S&C Electric Company and Xerox Corporation, will also share their perspectives on the challenges of being female in male-dominated fields. The discussion will be moderated by Beth Resse, President, Nicor Gas and Senior Vice President, AGL Resources.
STEM is an extremely viable career path – many of the opportunities available today require STEM training and background. STEM education also provides an advantage for women in leadership positions - half of the top global women CEOs have degrees in STEM. The Club promotes supporting an interest in STEM for young people and welcomes attendees to register young women (under 20) interested in STEM as guests for this program at a special rate.
