This week we were joined by Wendi Runyon at Schneider Electric to talk about the importance of STEM education and how to align career opportunities for graduates. We examined how the skills learned in a STEM curriculum are easily transferable to any career path. Additionally, Wendi discussed how to improve the pipeline of female workers at all levels in a company. Finally, we talked about the many leadership development programs available, and how they can help students learn about the various career paths open to them.
