I heard about PLEN through my college’s career center. I felt the need to attend this seminar because I’m a chemistry major who plans to have a career in the STEM field and also because I’ve never heard of STEM policy, so I wanted to see what it was all about. The seminar exceeded my expectations. I got the opportunity to meet other college women who have the same interest in STEM as I do, I learned about careers that I had no idea existed, I got the opportunity to network with great women who provided much needed advice, and also I made new “sisters.” This seminar gave me confidence in myself and showed me that it’s not about the path I take to get to my career or the downfalls I may endure along the way, it’s about taking advantage of the opportunities I have in front of me. This seminar pushed me to finish strong and show that women in STEM matter!
