Dear Readers,

 

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education is highly valued by employers. We know that women are often underrepresented in STEM fields and many programs have been developed to correct that imbalance. 

 

However, what about the role of art (i.e. creativity) in these fields?  Good design is essential to product development and innovation.  That means employers also need to cultivate creativity among employees – particularly among those in STEM fields.  This month’s article from Lauren Dixon at Talent Economy shares how employers are meshing traditional STEM-types with creative-focused employees to produce better outcomes.

 

To help deliver training or communicate with far-flung employees, a webinar can be a great solution.  On December 1st, we encourage you to attend a free webinar on the art of webinar production.  Sponsored by Citrix GoToWebinar, you’ll learn:

 

  - How to structure your webinar content for maximum time efficiency

  - Best practices to set up your equipment, camera, and monitors

  - How to use modern webinar tools to engage your audience

 

You’ll gain new information and resources whether you’re new to webinar production, or you’re looking to tune-up your game plan.   Register today for free.
