Role Models Matter
Nasdaq President and CEO, Adena Friedman, the first female to hold this position, is a fantastic role model for all RTSWS students. Why? The #1 reason girls aren’t choosing STEM professions – They don’t see women in those professions. The #2 reason – They don’t see their girl friends choosing those professions.
We are thrilled to be working with Nasdaq to #RewriteTomorrow today! Click below to see the recorded Facebook Live interview.
