Young Women in STEM



DID YOU KNOW? Women make up nearly half of the working population, but only 26% work in STEM fields. (U.S. Census Bureau) AJA, with the support from the Atlanta Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta, is helping to level out the playing field in STEM careers for women.  

AJA is a Proud Grantee Partner of Jewish Women's Fund of Atlanta. We are creating programs to provide young women in the Atlanta Jewish community with the information and knowledge to pursue degrees and job opportunities in the STEM fields.


Women in STEM Career Fair will be held Sunday, March 17 from 1:30 - 4:30 pm at AJA Upper SchoolAll Jewish female high school students and rising 9th Graders in the Greater Atlanta area are invited to attend this free event.
