Women in STEM: A Panel Discussion (Panelist)

“The best thing women can do to support one another and bring equity to the STEM field is to build an ever-expanding community and network.
Through her experiences in the workforce, Dr. Bilita Mattes, Executive Director of the STEM-UP Network and Provost and Chief Academic Officer of Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, has learned that these relationships are integral to finding passion and success in a career. Even accomplished women require support from time to time from an encouraging community and a solid network of colleagues, like the STEM-UP Network. It is often this support that gives us the confidence to point to our achievements and to promote our ideas.”  – “Speaking Up and Speaking Loud: Advice from Bilita Mattes” by Abigail Johnson, REINVENTED Magazine
