Eva Longoria, Latinas in STEM
Eva Longoria on how to arm Latinas with the ability to achieve economic mobility and independence.
- My thesis was about Latinas in STEM fields because STEM jobs, science, technology, engineering, math, obviously that's the fastest growing sector of jobs in the world. And if you look at Latinos, or you look at any community, it's the women in that community that are leading the way. They are the CEOs of the household. They are making the financial decisions, the educational decisions, the healthcare decision, the economic decisions in every household. My goal with my foundation and with my thesis, which lead to my foundation, was how do we arm Latinas with the ability to have economic mobility in life. How do they get ahead? How do they become independent? And it was so much fun to research and be specific and to somehow contribute back to the community in which I came from. And my foundation is really, stems from that.
