The purpose of this counselor professional development was to inform counselors about STEM careers and how they can help prepare students for such occupations. An overview of major issues involved with gender stereotypes, bias, and disparities in STEM was introduced along with tools and resources to address such concerns in the K-12 environment. Interactive activities saught to develop the counselors’ confidence in advocating and counseling students for careers in STEM. This presentation was designed for the Plano ISD P-12 counselors. The majority of these counselors attended a workshop in 2008 about “What is Engineering?” Some of this workshop was a review, but careers in science and math were also introduced. This specific workshop was presented on Nov 30, 2010 by Meagan Ross (email@example.com).
