Women in STEM
Introduce a Girl to Engineering
Introduce a Girl to Engineering, or Girl Day, is celebrated internationally during Engineers Week each year to encourage girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers. Participants explore engaging, hands-on demonstrations hosted by female engineering students at UT Dallas and industry professionals from Texas Instruments. Introduce a Girl to Engineering will be held on Thursday, February 20, 2014.
The success of the programs depends on the leadership of student volunteers at UT Dallas. Undergraduate and graduate students of any gender and major who have a sincere desire to encourage girls to achieve their goals and are looking to strengthen their own coaching and leadership skills are invited to participate. Student volunteers will lead participants through the activities and will have an opportunity to serve as a resource by sharing knowledge, skills and experiences.

Support and Advancement of Women in STEM at UT Dallas
The purpose of this group is for professional networking in STEM-related fields. This group will be a gated-access site, exclusively for current UT Dallas female students and alums, studying and working in STEM fields, as well as female industry STEM professionals, both locally and globally.
The potential for building a solid base of contacts and fostering new business relationships encourage mentoring and sharing of information. Anyone in the group can share articles or communicate through our discussion area, moderated by the GWC.
