About Nebraska Women in STEM

The goal of Nebraska Women in STEM is to provide professional women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) an opportunity to connect, discuss, and collaborate in an effort to bring awareness and increase opportunities in STEM.

  • Address industry workforce shortages and diversity challenges by providing awareness and education and advocating for women in STEM.

  • Create more career and leadership opportunities for women in STEM by providing professional development opportunities.

  • Connect professional women in STEM through networking and mentorship opportunities.
