"Entrepreneurship is in the nature of women; we like to multitask," Endeavor's Laura Maydón told an audience of approximately 80 women at AS/COA's 2nd Women's Hemispheric Network Forum in Miami. "[It's] also a solution for a lot of women that want a flexible schedule." Joined by fellow entrepreneur Lisa Raggiri and moderator Camila Souza, the panelists discussed their experiences trading corporate careers for jobs they were truly passionate about, plus the advantages they had as females in male-dominated industries. Given the low ratio of women pursuing careers in STEM fields today, panelists agreed efforts to reverse the imbalance have to begin at the elementary school level.
