Former Olympian Mia Hamm and DeVry University Host National HerWorld® Month to Empower High School Women to Prepare for College and Reach their Career Aspirations

HerWorld events across the country teach high school girls about exciting careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., March 01, 2012 - It is estimated that by 2020 nearly two thirds of high-skilled, high-paying jobs in America will go unfilled due to lack of qualified candidates1, a situation that is compounded as more than half of college presidents say students arrive at college less prepared than a decade ago2. To raise awareness of this issue, Olympic gold medalist Mia Hamm, U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and hopefuls through 2016, and DeVry University corporate partners are teaming with DeVry University for National HerWorld month this March to inspire young women across the country to reach their full potential.
