Women in STEM Panel Discussion with the Stockton Women in Mathematics & Stockton University Environmental Club 

Disappointed by the large gender gap in STEM careers, student organizations Stockton Women in Mathematics and the Stockton University Environmental Club held a panel discussion on March 21, with women who are leaders in their respective fields. Students had the opportunity to be inspired by the accomplished panelists and learn more about how they could break into the industry once they graduate and leave the nest.
