Dana Lorberg, parent, was featured in the St. Louis Business Journal on 05.17.19, in a story on Mastercard boosting female STEM participation: "Dana Lorberg, Mastercard’s executive vice president of network technology, likes to say there’s a crisis on the planet. 'There are not enough kids that are going to be graduating with the skills to do the tech jobs that the world is going to have. That is particularly prevalent with girls,' the St. Louis-based executive said. Five years ago, Mastercard launched its Girls4Tech program, which works with girls ages 8-12 to build skills and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. More than 400,000 students have participated in the program. Now, there are plans for expansion with Mastercard rolling out new curriculum and expanding the age range for the program."
