STEM Summit XII was held May 8, 2015, at L-3 Communications at Aberdeen Proving Ground, and focused on the topic of Women In STEM: Progress and Challenges in Closing the Gender Gap.
Jyuji D. Hewitt, Deputy Director, RDECOM at APG, addresses the summit. His key comment resonated with audience and underscored the summit’s focus – “critical STEM professionals retiring in the next 5-7 years may not be able to be replaced”.
This is why the summit exists: recommend actions to dramatically expand the STEM pipeline.
