Please join Women in Lighting + Design (WILD)'s panel with representatives from architectural lighting design firms, Parsons School of Design, and the Stacks + Joules training program as we discuss the lack of women and minorities within the lighting industry and how education in STEM programs and other measures can help increase these numbers.

WHO is missing from the industry?

WHY do we have a lack of diversity among women and minorities in our lighting industry; especially from STEM backgrounds?

WHAT can we do in education and training to encourage diversity in our industry?

WHEN should students (what age) get real exposure to STEM curriculum and how can we join in the effort to reach them?

HOW do we encourage students to choose STEM-related professions; and do women and minorities have the same access to those choices as others?
