A conference to celebrate women in STEM was just held at UAlbany this past week.

It’s called "State of Grace," and it brings together women who work in science, technology, engineering, the arts and math. The conference was inspired by Grace Hopper, a computer programmer and inventor who was a pioneer in her field.

Jennifer Goodall, with the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security, and Cybersecurity, says women make up less than 30 percent of the U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering, and math.
