THE WHAT? Mary Kay hosted a group of 25 young female students for an educational exploration of Women in STEAM in advance of the celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science last week.
THE DETAILS The high-school pupils spent the day at the direct sales brand’s manufacturing facility in Texas, learning about the different aspects of STEAM-related manufacturing processes.
THE WHY? Lucy Gildea, Chief Innovation Officer, Product and Science at Mary Kay, explains, “Mary Kay is committed to empowering and inspiring the next generation of women to pursue their passions—because the future is STEAM. Women are underrepresented in the STEAM workforce, but we can narrow that gap by providing critical early learning opportunities and exposure for young women to seek out and explore STEAM careers of interest.”
