FLATE Focus: June 2016

This special “Woman in STEM” edition of the FLATE Focus newsletter is a great look at how women are impacting Florida’s STEM workforce.

FLATE has been a big proponent for promoting #WomenInSTEM. Over the years the Center has not only formulated curriculum and projects that are geared to encourage women to pursue STEM based educational pathways and careers, but has led several initiatives that have highlighted the pertinent role women have played as leaders in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. One of the efforts FLATE has continued to champion and support is the STEP Ahead Awards, a national effort spearheaded by the Manufacturing Institute, to recognize the prominent role women here in Florida and across the nation have played and continue to exert in American Manufacturing.
