“I can remember being one of only 7 female Electrical Engineers in nearly 1000 graduates in the Virginia Tech graduating class of 1994. It was overwhelming to navigate a male-dominated curriculum.“- Aarti Smith.
Thankfully today, we have more women in STEM then ever before due to great female mentors, supporters, educators, and business leaders who are cheerleaders for STEM and women empowerment! Excited to see the impact that girls and women of tomorrow will make. #EMPOWHER
