"Heroines and Heros - The Importance of Role Modeling for the Future STEAM Workforce"
Founder and CEO Dr. Jose Morey is working in conjunction to his Eisenhower Fellowship with Ad Astra Media’s mission by focusing on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education to uplift underserved economies and proliferate peace among people.
With this mission, he is working on a book about the importance of role models. "All of us have been mentored throughout life on how to live and act and have had role models that have allowed us to reach the place we are in life”, says Dr. Morey. He feels strongly that role models and leaders are the key to connecting S.T.E.A.M. opportunities to our future generations. He has been accumulating influential people in S.T.E.A.M. (such as Vint Cerf, David Sinclair, Amy Webb, and Victoria Alonso Perez) and sharing their stories alongside those of History (Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Jeff Bezos and more).
In addition to sharing their stories and their work, Dr. Morey will highlight who their role models were and how their influences guided our leaders to where they are today.
The goals for this book are to provide our younger generations with role models in S.T.E.A.M. industries, especially ones from a minority or opposite gender. Dr. Morey’s hope is that this will excel in underprivileged and underrepresented communities to encourage the pursuit of these careers, starting a ripple effect in their community for sustainable jobs, better healthcare, increased income, and more.
