Participate in the Women’s History Month events at County College of Morris (CCM) and walk-through time with a virtual tour of the New York Historical Society’s “Women March” and learn about STEM career opportunities for women.

In conjunction with The Women’s Center, the Commemoration Committee at CCM will present “Women in STEM: Know Your Career Options” via Zoom on Thursday, March 11, at 12:30 p.m.

The American Association of University Women’s notes that women make up only 28 percent of the STEM workforce. Employers are looking to fill that gap. Take part in this CCM’s Women’s History Month event and find out what opportunities are available. The panelists and topics they will cover are:

  • Shannon Langeres, director of the Women’s Center, on the services the center offers
  • Alexandra Hoffmann, associate director of the Center for Workforce Development, on apprenticeship programs offered by CCM and career path possibilities
  • Patricia Tamburelli, professor of Information Technologies, on CCM student success in obtaining jobs in STEM fields
  • Christine Kelly, assistant chair and associate professor of the Biology & Chemistry department, on her experiences working in STEM

The Commemoration Committee also will present a virtual tour of the New York Historical Society’s “Women March” exhibit on Tuesday, March 30, at 12:30 p.m. via Zoom. Viewers will gain insight into 200 years of women’s activism, while celebrating the centennial of women’s suffrage and the passage of the 19th Amendment. Leading the tour is a curator from New-York Historical Society’s Center for Women’s History. The interactive virtual presentation uses photographs, campaign posters and historic footage to uncover the stories of women throughout the centuries who organized and marched to end slavery, win the vote and protect reproductive rights, among other crucial causes.
