EP 26: "The STEM Re-entry Internship – A Benchmark for Success" with Jen Scott
Carol talks with Jen Scott, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships for the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and co-lead of the STEM Re-Entry Task Force. Since its inception in 2016 the STEM Re-entry Task Force has been a pipeline for more than 200 female technical professionals to return to the workforce. In this podcast, Carol and Jen discuss how the Task Force was initially conceived, its substantial growth over the past few years, how returning professionals can find out more about these programs, how to apply, and what to expect in these programs. Companies considering developing a re-entry internship will hear about how these internship programs are set up, the support from SWE and iRelaunch, and the nearly 90% average hiring rates after program completion.
