Women's History Month Spotlight - Monique Sanders

Monique Sanders received her Bachelor's Degree in Biological Engineering from Louisiana State University and her MBA in Project Management from Columbia Southern University. Monique has served as an engineer for a global healthcare organization for over 10 years. She is now sharing ideas and developing strategies to help other young innovators solve global problems through innovation. Monique recently published her first book Confidently Calculated: A Guide to STEM Professional Development for Teens.

In addition to her extensive professional experience, Monique also serves the Athens community as a member of the ACC Planning Commission, Project Safe Board of Directors, Service to Youth and Communications Chair for the Athens Chapter of the Links, and CEO & Founder of Get STEMulated, LLC. Her goal is to implement a legacy of excellence for the younger generation through initiatives to enhance STEM education and technical skill development in Athens.

Get STEMulated has provided enrichment programming for the Boys and Girls Club of Athens since 2018 by hosting three core programs: Spring Break STEM Camps, the STEMPreneurship Program, and the STEM Summer Passport Workforce Development Excursions Program. Monique is intentional about developing programs with age-appropriate content to spark excitement about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics!

In the past two years, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Athens have been honored to sponsor the STEM Summer Passport Workforce Development Excursions Program, exposing students aged 10-17 to corporations in Athens, Atlanta, and surrounding cities. Students have had the opportunity to visit and meet CEOs, General Managers, and founders of several companies - including the Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Chick-Fil-A Corporation, Ethicon, Mercedes Benz Stadium, and Delta Airlines.  The program’s objective is to engross participants to build on knowledge and understanding of scientific processes and principles by sharing ideas, troubleshooting, discovering solutions, and analyzing them with guidance from STEM professionals. They are allowed to discuss industry-specific case studies to help determine the best business solutions, practicing troubleshooting skills while addressing real organizational problems.
