Tomorrow afternoon between 1 to 3 pm, NASA will host a conversation at their Headquarters in Washington on pathways for women and girls into Stem (science, technology, engineering and math) academic programs and careers.

Engaging Women and Girls in STEM through Data Science, will air on NASA Television Wednesday, June 15th and stream live on the agency’s website.

This event is part of the United State of Women Summit, a large-scale effort convened by the White House Council on Women and Girls to rally advocates of gender equality, highlight what has been achieved, identify remaining challenges, and chart a course for addressing them.

U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith will join the discussion with NASA Deputy Administrator Dava Newman, Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan, and others who are working at the community level to find out how they are empowering women and girls to use data science to tackle real-world, and out-of-this-world, problems through international data challenges and other data science initiatives.

To Participate in the conversation, use hashtag State of Women on Twitter at: US Women 2016.
