Last week Emerson Automation Solutions sponsored the Texas Women & Girls in STEM Summit in Austin, TX.

As we near 2019, the number of girls pursuing STEM education and Women pursuing STEM careers, especially engineering, continues to underwhelm. Here are the latest statistics:

Yes! I have been wanting to connect Emerson, and our Women in STEM, to a group I volunteer with in Austin called Latinitas (http://latinitasmagazine.org/). They work on empowering girls to innovate through media and technology. They probably could benefit from a similar activity lab from one of our mentors/volunteers!
