Ximedica Hosts 3rd Annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day
With females representing less than 11% of the engineering workforce in our country and the knowledge that gender diversity is often linked to corporate profitability and employee satisfaction, Ximedica is committed to educational outreach opportunities targeting young women.
For that reason last Thursday Ximedica hosted 26 high school juniors and seniors and 4 of their teachers from the Lincoln School and St. Mary’s Bayview Academy at our 3rd Annual ‘Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day’ event. The event was a half day that consisted of 6 interactive workshops, a guided tour of our facility and most importantly shared wisdom from Ximedica’s female workforce.
