Untitled design(1).pngIn August, young women from the Cayman Islands came together for a two-day virtual STEM summit: Women Rock-It.

The Summit aimed to inspire young females to pursue careers in STEM since research shows that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are still male-dominated fields.

How was this virtual summit possible?

Last year, when the pandemic forced the islands to close their schools leaving children without access to reliable internet at home, Cisco decided to help by donating Wi-Fi hotspots to the Cayman Islands.

Giving residents access to free wireless internet at ten community sites across the islands, enabled them to help connect with family, friends, and online resources. These resources helped provide them an alternative path to a career in STEM.

Everyone’s journey to a career in STEM looks different. What inspired your path? Comment below and tell us about yours!
