Assemblymember Mayer Hosts Event to Promote Girls in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics

October 3, 2017

While the demand for computing skills in the work place increases, the gender disparity between the number of women and men in the computing and technology sectors keeps growing. Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins and I are sponsoring a free showing of the movie "Hidden Figures" to promote more girls in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Please bring your school-aged child at the Riverfront Library on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 2:00 PM to watch the movie with friends and classmates. We will be giving away free Google tote bags, and we will have popcorn and candy for the viewing.

Looking forward to seeing you there as we inspire more young women to break barriers.

Please call my office at 914-779-8805 if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Shelley B. Mayer
