  • Honoring and celebrating the achievements of women in STEM fields at UW-Platteville. Providing encouragement, recognition, and support to women students is essential to creating and maintaining an inclusive learning environment where women prosper.
  • Providing networking opportunities and professional connections for women STEM students. Exposure to career connections and opportunities in the field encourages long-term planning and a focus on the future. This larger picture contributes to persistence in STEM degrees and eventual employment in the field.
