Celebrating the women of ASU Online who inspire, advance STEM education
Among those honored during Women’s History Month for their contributions to society are women making significant achievements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. That group includes standouts who make up more than half of the ASU faculty members teaching through ASU Online. Fulton Schools Associate Professor Kristen Parrish is one those who are not only outstanding STEM educators but are also inspiring students to pursue innovative paths in their careers. Beyond teaching energy-efficient building design and construction, Parrish focuses on teaching her students — especially women — about perseverance, connecting to others they identify with in their professions and cultivating a sense of belonging among women in STEM fields.
