Young Women in STEM Career Fair
Mar. 17, 2019
Hosted by Atlanta Jewish Academy
DID YOU KNOW? Women make up nearly half of the working population, but only 26% work in STEM fields. (U.S. Census Bureau) AJA, with the support from the Atlanta Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta, is helping to level out the playing field in STEM careers for women.
On March 17, Atlanta Jewish Academy will host the Young Women in STEM Career Fair (Honorary Event Chair, Deborah F. Fernhoff, Ph.D). All Jewish female high school students and rising 9th Graders are invited to attend this free event. This event is made possible by a grant from the Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta and includes classes, experiments, career booths, mentoring program registration (with partner, JumpSparkATL) and an incredible keynote speaker, Dr. Lori Zeltser.
