#WorkTrends Preview: How Academia and Business Support STEM

The world of education and business are at a precipice in relation to what we need to keep our economy chugging along without slowing down the advancements needed to remain an economic leader.

This week Meghan M. Biro and guest Rachael Mann discuss the intricacies around how academia and business can and should work collaboratively in supporting our growing need for more technically trained people… and this is especially true when it comes to technically educated female students. The initiative called STEM was developed for this exact reason.

Join Meghan and Rachael on Wednesday, November 30 at 1pm EST to hear more about this important initiative and to learn more about how businesses can support the academic cause to keep this movement growing.
