Itâ€™s important to examine what is needed for female students to feel supported and when those students choose a career.Â At APU we have already taken two necessary steps for women to feel supported in a STEM field: emphasizing female role models to keep female STEM students inspired and working hard to foster a strong sense of community among STEM students and faculty. We intend to provide practical solutions for women in STEM fields.

However, the role of a leader is not just a functional one, it is also an inspirational and motivational one. To perform well, you need to be the best you can be, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
