Women in STEM careers program at Library Saturday

As part of Women's
History Month, the Friends of the Plainfield Public Library are offering a forum Saturday on 'Women in STEM Careers'. The program should be of special interest to 8th to 12th grade students as well as those in college but still thinking of a career decision.

STEM is an acronym for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, fields in which the presence of more trained women is a chronic need.

The program will be a panel presentation by women with careers in each of the four areas, and questions from the audience will be welcomed. Participants include: Dr. Krista Natasha Blackwell (Instructor in Pharmacology and Physiology, UMDNJ, Newark); Maureen Taylor (Senior Director, Wireless Business Group, Alcatel-Lucent); Dielanda J. Dumay, PhD. (Project Engineer); and Daphne Thomas Jones (Actuarial Analyst).

The program will take place in the Anne Louise Davis Meeting Room of the Plainfield Public Library and is free and open to the whole community.
