Webinar Recording: Disrupt the Default for Women in STEM

It’s no secret that women in STEM— science, technology, engineering and math—face significant challenges. 

During this webinar, Nicole Holmes, SVP, Sales and Contracts at GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy, and Shawn Purvis, Sector Vice President and General Manager, Cyber Division, Northrop Grumman Information Systems, shared how they maneuvered through obstacles in STEM fields and found solutions for advancing their careers. Deborah Campbell, Senior Director and Consultant, Global Member Services, Catalyst, moderated the discussion, and referenced Catalyst’s groundbreaking global report, High Potentials in Tech-Intensive Industries: The Gender Divide in Business Roles, which reveals a culture that is particularly unwelcoming to women, no matter what the job.
