The educational gap that is present within urban communities is causing a steep divide within the overall STEM industry. A lack of exposure, academic support and resources are hindering the posibilities of minority youth within the STEM industry. President Obama has noticed the void and gap and developed an initiative to combat it.Highlighting the notion that if America wants to compete with other countries our youth must be able to embrace a technological, scientific, mathmatic and engineering platform to ensure our place as a world trailblazer. Tonight we are going to address why there is a gap within urban schools andhow we can enrich youth with oppurtunities to advance within STEM.
Girls Can Do (GCD) provides positive role models who are everyday yet extraordinary women talking about choices, determination, hardships, failure, resilience, and success. The Girls Can Do event series started with a single speaker and a small idea in January 2014. Since then, it has quickly grown into a movement with a big vision and big plans to match. Its mission is to inspire a generation of possibility thinkers, and to encourage young women to have big dreams and pursue them. After all, what you want to do in life is always your best option, and anything is possible if you expect it. GCD hosts events around the country and the world, at low to no cost for young women and girls. These events are special days where girls come to engage, connect, and share experiences with amazing women speakers who are pursuing their dreams. They also partner with local organizations focused on girls programming to provide “next steps” for newly inspired Possibility Thinkers.
Ashby Fiser of Bainbridge Island is an Outreach Focus volunteer for GCD, and a UX Researcher and Designer in her professional life. Join us as we discuss GCD, empowerment, and women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

As a Master Educator Washington, DC native Ateya Ball-Lacy has become an ambassador for STEM education. One of the primary goals of President Barack Obama’s educate to innovate campaign is to broaden participation to inspire a more diverse STEM talent pool. Ateya Ball-Lacy has found an innovative way to educate and increase the talent pool of youth in America who have specific interests in pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math at the collegiate and professional level. She has created a reality-based game show called HOOD SMART: The Urban STEMulus Project. This reality TV series presents high school students with STEM challenges all for a chance to win a full ride scholarship to their dream university to major in STEM-related fields. The students meet their goals under the guidance of parents, tutors, judges, STEM experts, and surprise celebrity guests.
The role of allogeneic stem cell transplantation is evolving in the paradigm of myeloma treatment. Despite its therapeutic potential of a myeloma cure, the use of donor stem cell transplantation or allogeneic transplantation is highly debated in the medical field due to the safety risks and rate of relapse. We are talking to Dr. Komanduri to better understand allogeneic transplants, optimal timing and how to manage graft-versus-myeloma effect for improved efficacy and safety.
Dr. Komanduri is Medical Director of the hematopoietic stem cell transplant program at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center, one of the fastest growing programs in the country.
