If so, we want you to join us as the anchor for our exciting new spin-off series focused on women in STEM!  We believe that a spin-off series focused on women in STEM, particularly in electron devices, will be a valuable addition to our podcast lineup. By highlighting the achievements and experiences of successful women engineers, we can inspire the next generation of women to pursue careers in STEM.

 

About the Series:  Building on the success of our IEEE EDS-sponsored Podcast with EDS Luminaries, which has garnered over 15,000 views, we propose to launch a spin-off series focused on women in STEM, with a particular emphasis on electron devices. The purpose of this series is to motivate and inspire women engineers to pursue careers in STEM fields, addressing the underrepresentation of women in engineering disciplines by showcasing the achievements, experiences, and insights of successful women in the field.

Each episode will delve into the guest's life, career journey, challenges faced, successes achieved, and advice for aspiring women engineers.

Launch Strategy:  We will launch the spin-off series through our existing podcast platform, leveraging our established audience and network.

A neutral committee will then interview the selected prospective candidates.

 

Benefits:

-        Provides role models and mentors for aspiring women engineers
