"The purpose of SHPEtinas is to build a community that empowers women in STEM and help them navigate through a male-dominated work and learning environment while accomplishing their own goals. We have built a safe and encouraging environment that motivates women to do their best in their professional, academic, and personal life, while at the same time becoming the best version of themselves."
