ATOM Pink TankPink Tank Throughout The Years

BankUnited Partnership


The 2020-2021 Pink Tank program operated under the theme “Investigating the Impact of the Covid‐19 Pandemic on Women working in STEM careers in South Florida.”

Final Challenge Presentation

The program’s final challenge involved small collaborative student teams, presented with real data sets and challenged to analyze the issues specifically impacting professional women in STEM as heightened by the pandemic, then propose unique and practical solutions of how organizations and women themselves may respond to address these challenges. This real-world experiential learning approach gave students the opportunity to pitch their innovative solutions in front of business executives at BankUnited, and the FIU community of leaders, faculty, staff and students.
