Women @ Energy - STEM Careers at US DoE - Linda Silverman

Blog Post created by kmillspaugh on Nov 21, 2016


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. We can and should share our own STEM stories to help engage others and offer our voices on how our STEM careers have impacted us. Questions? Comments? Want to request a speaker? Get in touch by emailing


"We need to ensure that we are always demonstrating the relevancy of STEM to our most critical challenges and that need new blood is needed to be most innovative. Girls and underrepresented groups need to see that their experience is crucial to contributing to solutions to these challenges. Not everyone in STEM has an engineering or science degree – folks can have other backgrounds."
