The Women@Energy series showcases profiles of inspirational women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers at the Department of Energy.
The profiles and videos highlight what inspired these women to work in STEM, what they do day-to-day in their jobs, their ideas for engaging others in STEM, tips, and more. Soon, the Women@Energy series will also include sample classroom lessons to engage middle school girls with the Women@Energy series.
We hope the stories and videos inspire women to think about their possible future in STEM.
