STEM needs less competition and more camaraderie

As the world pauses today to celebrate Women and Girls in Science, one woman in Central Ohio is hoping that we can encourage a little more camaraderie and a little less competition in the STEM fields.

Susanna Tanck, an engineer at Nexceris, a Lewis Center, Ohio-based, renewable energy-focused company, said while she hopes we can achieve more equity and intersectionality for women in STEM, she feels that we might encourage more young women to study STEM subjects if we make more room for them.
