Today’s girls, tomorrow’s entrepreneurs: The role of women in workforce development
From racing robots to deconstructing computers, Karen Lundquist doesn’t have to look far to see ways big and small that her organization is helping shape girls for their professional futures.
The CEO of EmBe views exposing young women to a broad range of opportunities that await in the working world as key to the organization’s mission.
“We believe with the right approaches, we’re finding ways for girls to get involved with science early and stay empowered to pursue the variety of directions their ability can take them,” she said.
Lundquist will be part of a panel at the Aug. 22 WIN in Workforce Summit presented by the Sioux Falls Development Foundation.
