For more than 100 years, Williams has been a leading designer, builder and operator of vital natural gas pipelines and other energy infrastructure. We’re deeply invested in Pennsylvania, and with a regional headquarters in Pittsburgh and field offices in Fayette, Susquehanna and Bradford counties, our Pennsylvania operations directly employ about 630 people.
Given the disparity in the ratio of males to females in STEM, we think it’s important to encourage female involvement with STEM. So when we were approached by Carnegie Science Center and Pittsburgh news station KDKA about title sponsorship of the inaugural “Girls Rock Science” exhibition, we jumped at the opportunity.
The goal of this event is to educate young women about STEM and increase interest and understanding of these subjects through our interactive display. Historically, males have held the majority of STEM-related jobs, but by exposing young females to the limitless opportunities in STEM studies and career fields, Girls Rock Science helps balance this trend and bring diversity to STEM.
