ALEUS Hosts STEM Career Day for Girl Scouts
Published on August 24, 2023
Women account for nearly half of the U.S. workforce, but are still underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce. The good news is that women have made gains in engineering occupations, increasing from 3% in 1970 to 15% in 2019*, and Air Liquide is doing its part to continue the progression.
On July 21, Air Liquide Electronics and Texas Instruments hosted a career exploration and STEM Day at the TI Blvd Gas plant in Dallas, Texas, for the Girls Scouts of Northeast Texas. This is the third year for ALEUS to host the event, inspiring young women to develop the hard and soft skills critical for careers in STEM.
Fifteen girls interested in STEM careers spent the day touring both the Air Liquide TI Blvd Gas plant and TI’s North Campus, where they learned firsthand how Air Liquide’s industrial gases are instrumental in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices and all the technologies enabled by these devices.
They also received a demonstration from the Freeze Team, learned how semiconductor devices are manufactured and heard from female leaders at Air Liquide and Texas Instruments about the importance of STEM in their lives and careers.
“We look forward to co-hosting this annual event,” ALEUS President Terry Humphrey said. “I would like to thank the Electronics Employee Engagement Team for another successful event. We appreciate all you do to build the next generation of leaders in STEM!”
