The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) has partnered with McAllen Public Utility (MPU) to address the gender gap in STEM by assessing gender representation in museum content. Together, IMAS and MPU will take actions toward creating an equitable STEM workforce by presenting the community with resources on STEM careers and representing more women scientists in exhibits and educational materials.
