Women and STEM: Harnessing the Great Reevaluation

With more than half of women considering a career change amid the pandemic, experts leading the charge address what companies must do to adapt. 

We’ve reached a critical inflection point in the workplace where women are evaluating their careers in a new light.

“It’s more important than ever that organizations – particularly those in STEM – offer the solutions that help women succeed. MetLife has a longstanding commitment of doing just that, promoting gender equity through programs like technical internships, trainings, and peer-to-peer mentoring – all of which aim to equip women in the workforce with the skills they need in demand areas.”

The conference addressed both near- and long-term solutions for employers to develop, support, and sustain the female workforce, and provide women in STEM with key learnings and actionable insights for career empowerment.
