International Women’s Day
Sunday, March 8th was International Women’s Day. To celebrate, Tech giant Microsoft posted this moving YouTube spot. It features young girls interested in science and technology, and highlights STEM’s persistent gender confidence gap. At The Franklin Foundation, our key focus is to close this gap by encouraging America’s young women to pursue careers in the sciences and technology. We believe more women in the sciences and technology is important to the health of American innovation. Click here to learn how our programs work to develop young women into scientists. Let’s celebrate International Women’s Day everyday – and encourage our young girls to explore careers in the sciences, mathematics, technology, and engineering disciplines.
