Celebrating STEM, one social post at a time

By Cathy Hirko

It’s exciting to learn about women in your community who love their careers and are happy to share a part of themselves with us.

With National STEM Day on Monday, we are celebrating the day by highlighting just those very women on our social media channels.

Look for a series of profiles of these women on our social media channels on Monday.

Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania and the PA Chamber Foundation have partnered up to share some brief snippets of information from women who have successful and fulfilling careers in STEM in our state.

STEM is one of the four pillars of Girl Scouts, so anytime we can highlight and share the good work of women loving and learning in their STEM careers, it’s important for us to do so. You have to see it, to be it, good leaders say.

So, keep an eye out on GSHPA’s social media channels, in particular our Facebook pages and LinkedIn pages, on Monday. We’ve never done a campaign like this before and we are excited to be a part of it.

Starting at 8 a.m., we are going to be sharing posts at the top of every hour of some local career voices in STEM. Look for them and, please, share them on your social channels.

If there is a young girl in your life who is interested in a STEM career, we are happy to give this snapshot of what it’s like in the real world.

The women pictured above are among the women who will be sharing a little bit about their careers on Monday.

Look for these hashtag on all the posts: #PAWomeninSTEM.
