AWARES Graduates Third Class of Students
Over the course of the past academic year, 17 future engineers and scientists have discussed how to combat a troubling trend in STEM fields: low advancement and retention of women in the workplace. It’s a problem plaguing male-dominated fields that the Aspiration for Women’s Advancement and Retention in Engineering and Science (AWARES) program hopes to change.
