Marion Leary is an active, vocal champion of initiatives for science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). She’s a Philly resident and is very busy around town, with efforts including startups, nonprofits, and the Start Talking Science event series. She also contributes for this very site on occasion!
Leary knows about STEAM through her professional experience and frequent advocacy. Recently, she started hosting a podcast interviewing women working to advance STEAM. Her series is called STEAMrollrs, part of the STEM Everyday podcast on the Remarkable Chatter network. This company’s entire mission is to generate educational podcasts.
The most recent STEAMrollrs episode has Leary in conversation with Ana Kay Yaghoubian, the STEM Senior Manager at the American Association of University Women to talk about the AAUW’s work, Yaghoubian’s experience, and the role gender can play in hiring practices.
