Dr. Cristal Glangchai, scientist and Founder/CEO of VentureLab, a non-profit that develops experiential learning programs in youth entrepreneurship, talks about her new book VentureGirls: Raising Girls to Be Tomorrow’s Leaders. Women currently fill just 10 to 20% of tech industry jobs. Glangchai offers a unique solution based on her own experience as an engineer and argues that a key part of raising strong, confident young women is giving them the tools of entrepreneurship to engage in STEM.
