Katers, recent grad Grossmeier talk women in STEM for Press-Gazette story
One of UW-Green Bay’s newest alumni (a cum laude grad and Chancellor’s Medallion winner, to boot) was featured in a Saturday (May 17) Green Bay Press-Gazette cover story about the trends on women in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Corinne Grossmeier, who graduated this weekend with a double major in Biology and Environmental Science, spoke with reporter Patti Zarling about her early interest in the sciences, talking about positive influences from her parents and sometimes not-so-positive feedback from peers. NAS Chair Prof. John Katers also is quoted, saying he tells students that jobs and opportunities are there — regardless of gender. The story also looks at some interesting statistics pertaining to women in STEM at UW-Green Bay. Full story.
