Workforce Development

“What stuck with me the most was being taught by intelligent women. Being exposed to a female work environment at a young age helped to give me the confidence I need as a young woman in the world we live in to be able to put myself out there and not second guess myself. Working in the female summer program environments inspired me to explore different fields of sciences as well as other typically male dominated careers while trying to figure out what career best suits me and what I might want to pursue. It gave me courage that I don’t think I would have had if I wasn’t blessed with the opportunity to be encouraged and taught by empowering women.”
