Before serving in Congress, Senator Jacky Rosen built her career as a computer programmer and systems analyst. She is passionate about mentoring women and girls who are interested in pursuing STEM careers. Since coming to Congress, she has introduced several bills to invest in early childhood STEM education, including legislation aimed at encouraging girls to explore STEM fields that passed the House last year as part of her Building Blocks of STEM bill.
Senator Rosen believes that highlighting female role-models can help combat negative stereotypes that hold women back from pursuing careers in STEM.
Every month our office highlights a Nevada woman in STEM to help raise profiles and break gender stereotypes so that we can inspire young girls everywhere. See past nominees here.
