Advocacy 101 - Reinventing the Perception of Women in STEM
"Renee Becker-Blau, (RBB), is a community-building, opportunity-chasing, trail-blazing, #STEMINIST who believes the future is built better together and our youth will change the world.
I want to ensure that EVERY student, regardless of gender, race, or socioeconomic status, has the opportunity to CHOOSE if they want to pursue a career in STEM, instead of life choosing for them. By day I'm the President of FIRST Indiana Robotics, a NPO K-12 STEM mentoring program, by night I work remotely as a Talent Development Associate with MKE Tech Hub Coalition and volunteer with Reinvented Magazine as COO."
