With global competitiveness at stake and millions of STEM-related jobs needing to be filled, there is no question that as a nation we must continue our push for the education, training and on-boarding of professionals skilled in science, technology, engineering and math, in our workforce.
Yet as women business owners I believe there is more that we can do in our own organizations to cultivate and prepare STEM-skilled women to become the leaders we need them to be.
We can show young women how to leverage their STEM expertise as a differentiator while developing the interactive and strategic communications skills they need in business. At the same time, it is our responsibility to give them opportunities and showcase their strengths from the beginning so that they can get the recognition and confidence to propel their careers forward.
