Despite the attention the gender imbalance in STEM and entrepreneurship has garnered recently, getting young girls interested in pursuing STEM and entrepreneurship has yet to be solved. This panel explores drivers to get girls interested in entrepreneurship and STEM, the barriers they face both systemically and culturally, and strategies the panelists have seen work in the past. It’s about time we unleash the creativity, ideas, and energy of half of the population.
