Tech Talk Series

How Women Can Succeed in STEM

Presented by Tauhida Parveen, PhD

The number of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields continues to decline. Even after numerous attempts to boost enrollment in schools, to provide positive role models for budding young scientists and engineers, and to encourage young girls to pursue careers in STEM, there are still societal problems. The recent book Lean In by the COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, highlights some of these issues at the highest corporate levels. Fortunately, there are excellent examples of women who have succeeded in STEM — often in the face of daunting challenges. Come to this inspiring talk by guest speaker Tauhida Parveen to hear about her experiences working in technical and leadership positions in academia and industry. Her story illustrates that women can excel in a male-dominated world — technical or otherwise.

Tauhida Parveen is University Department Chair of Software Engineering at Keiser University. She is also Lead Instructor at Thinkful, a NYC-based startup focused on the online education experience for tomorrow’s developers. She holds a PhD in Computer Science from the Florida Institute of Technology and an MBA from the University of Central Florida. She is a co-founder of Big Data Florida. Her recent books include Software Testing in the Cloud: Migration & Execution (Springer, 2012).
