STEMettes encourage women and girls to pursue IT

We live in a rapidly evolving digital world where technology makes life easier. Today, navigation systems in cars re-route drivers if a road closes for construction repairs, while insurance companies offer financial discounts by monitoring a driver’s style via a mobile phone app. At home, people are exploring artificial intelligence through Amazon’s Echo and Alexa. And our […]

But perhaps the three most discussed and well defined leadership styles are these: transformational, transactional and laissez faire (a bit of French that translates “let them do [it]”).

I believe that if we encourage girls in computer science from an early age and support their careers as adults, they […]
