Women In STEM Resources
WNY Advising is very supportive of regional efforts to promote women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. From an advising standpoint, it is critical to know more about these efforts across our campuses, and to participate in breaking down some of the barriers. The following resources are curated from a variety of WNY initiatives aimed at this issue. We encourage you to explore these organizations and support their events.
