About Us


Queens STEM Career Women, Inc. (QSCW)

We are a group of professional women dedicated to inspiring young girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. Women remain under represented in these fields and we feel compelled to take an active role in changing this. QSCW was founded in 2016 by Karen R. Wellington, a retired mathematics teacher who taught in New York City for over 26 years. For twelve years, Ms Wellington also participated in Explore Your Opportunities, an annual STEM conference for girls, sponsored by the Westchester Chapter of the American Association of University Women. Karen Wellington is president of the board of QSCW which is includes women professionals who are all residents of Queens.
