Reflecting on an Empowering Experience: 2024 Women & STEAM Symposium

Yesterday I attended the Project Fibonacci Women & STEAM Symposium, and it was an incredible event filled with inspiration and empowerment.

The symposium coincided perfectly with International Women’s Day, embodying the spirit of the occasion by showcasing the remarkable achievements of women in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). From the interactive panel featuring ten local, esteemed women discussing their experiences, to the networking sessions and career fair, the event served as a powerful platform for women’s empowerment in STEAM. Participants had the opportunity to not only celebrate the contributions of women in these fields, but also to engage in meaningful discussions and take actionable steps towards creating a more inclusive and equitable future for all.

It was also a day to inspire the next generation of trailblazers, with more than 125 female students in attendance. As a sponsor of the event, we were able to present a scholarship for a local student to be able to attend the 6th Annual STEAM Leadership Conference this August.

As I reflect on my experience at the symposium, I’m filled with gratitude for the opportunities that have come my way in my career. It was an honor to represent AIS and share my journey as a woman in STEAM with the attendees, encouraging them to pursue their passions fearlessly.

AIS is a proud sponsor of this event. Learn more about our community impact:
