Published on

Astra Women’s Business Alliance believes that the young women today are the leaders and visionaries of tomorrow. With that belief that Astra President and Vice-President, Diane McClelland and Suzanne Lackman, started the Astra S.T.E.A.M. Program in 2013. The Astra S.T.E.A.M. Program takes a holistic, pathways approach to S.T.E.A.M. Education. Following a pathways approach, encourages a shift in focus from numbers of people in S.T.E.A.M. jobs and people with STEAM degrees to focusing on equipping individuals, specifically girls, with the skills needed to thrive and grow in the workforce.
