They will also brainstorm how to support and retain women in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

Stepp, a Computer Science major in the College of Computing, is a former national and regional winner of the Aspirations in Computing Award. Champion is an assistant professor in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
