“Pioneers in Skirts” Screening & Q&A

Pioneers in Skirts is a feature documentary examining the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, limit her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.
Director Ashley Maria shares her own story as she follows the journey of 3 ambitious girls on a robotics team, their fathers, as well as a young mother – all while speaking with fellow pioneering women and topic experts who have solutions to share – in order to show how we ALL can be part of the solution.
