Recently, YPAC was invited to a discussion hosted by the US Consul General with NASA’s Dr. Fox to address empowering women & girls in STEM.

Kendra Ryan and Sarah Vandaiyar attended on behalf of YPAC. Dr. Fox discussed her journey in becoming the director of NADA’s Heliophysics Division, leading the agency’s efforts to study the sun and its effects on earth and the solar system.

There were quite a few Calgary-based women in STEM groups represented and the outcome of the event was for each of these groups to continue to collaborate and work together to attract and support more women in STEM.
