Come listen to Connect With STEM co-founder Sabriya Stukes participate in a Women of Color STEM Career panel this Saturday at Brooklyn Borough Hall from 10 AM - 12 PM.

We're co-hosting this event with the New York chapter of Black Girls Code, an amazing organization we're thrilled to support.

In addition to some amazing panelists, there will be a back to school supply giveaway that is being sponsored by the Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams!

"We need far more young creative minds — be they in Boston or Botswana, Beijing or Bangladesh — to tap into the power of science to explore questions of vital importance to human health."

These numbers should be a wake up call and are a good reminder that there is still more work to be done.

"Evolving ourselves and our society for the better through technology will require a far more diverse talent pool in science and engineering fields than the alarmingly resilient white- and Asian-male pool we’re running with today."

"Creating STEM programming that engages girls earlier in their elementary and secondary-school education will help shift the classroom dynamic away from one that is majority boys and thus more welcoming to girls. "
